Broker's Comments

A superb example of a 1912 Dutch Tjalk.
Expertly renovated for comfortable living aboard, cruising the inland waterways and sailing the Mediterranean.
Spacious luxury for anyone who appreciates a classic traditional style barge that has been tastefully and professionally converted for modern day living.
Engines, rigging, structure and all other machinery maintained to a high standard by her fastidious owners during the past 21 years.

Little more to say other than we recommend a close look at the fine detail and quality of this vessel in our photographs, videos and 360° images, then contact us to arrange a visit.
She is presently cruising the Canal du Midi and the Mediterranean east of Beziers.
