Small Dutch Barge ‘Wendy’ £35,000ono
‘Wendy’ is a small Dutch barge believed built in the 1970s in Leiden, Netherlands. For her size, she is surprisingly roomy having fore and aft cabins and a wheelhouse that provides additional living space. She was bought by the current owner in the Netherlands and has been used year round for cruising and as a houseboat, so could be great as a liveaboard. Last out of the water in 2018 for blacking and anodes and mechanically sound, although the decks and superstructure need repainting.
The vessel is lying away, so please contact us in advance to arrange a viewing.
