Luxemotor type barge built in 1912, by the Joseph BOEL & ZONEN yard in Belgium. The current owners have undertaken a total rebuild (New bottom up!!) which took 10 years to achieve with everything revisited. New bottom, engine, technical installations and refit. Her dimensions allow for great interior living space whilst facilitationg easy navigation.
The hull has been totally replaced from the forward peak watertight hulkhead to the middle of the engine room. The rest was overplated. These works were professionally done from 2000 to 2003. The superstructure has been insulated with spray foam in 2010.

3 watertight bulkheads divide the barge in 4 spaces. The first watertight bulkhead is situated between the forward peak and the main living accommodation. The two others are on each side of the engine room. Access to the forward peak by a outside hatch and a ladder, access to the aft peak by a hatch in the aft cabin floor.

In the forward peak : the bow thruster, the saniflo (receiving the waste water from the 2 forward cabins), the anchor locker, a tank of 1400 liters, full of water for the moment (ballast) but able to become the holding tank if required. Excellent storage for ropes, fenders etc.

The engine room is well sound proofed using thick industrial foam. There is full standing headroom and a CCTV camera to a screen in the wheelhouse allowing constant surveillance of the machinery from the helm.

In the aft peak, are the hot water tank, the exhaust gas cooling, the belt drive and the propeller shaft. Another CCTV camera controls this space.

The wheelhouse windows fold to pass under low bridges. The front and back windows hinge down, the sides and the wheelhouse roof can be dismantled and kept on deck. The air draft is 3.45 meters wheelhouse up and less than 2.60 wheelhouse down.

2 gas bottles are kept in the gas locker on the aft deck.
No steps on the side decks.
Last hull sounding done in 2009.
Renewal of the TRIWV in 2019.

2 side doors to walk into the wheelhouse, no steps, same level as the side decks

4 steps down aft to aft cabin reserved for the moment for the guests, with an Italian shower and basin, centre bed & separate WC. Windows were built especially in India. 1 smoke detector in the corridor.

7 steps down forward, is the main living accommodation with day spaces including kitchen and the saloon :

The kitchen is organized in a U form on starboard : 1 fridge-freezer, 1 oven-grill, 1 five burner hob (gas) with extractor, 1 sink, 1 dishwasher, many cupboards, 1 table, 4 chairs.

2 steps lower, is the saloon. Bright airy and convivial I was impressed by the feeling of space and comfort & yet cosy atmosphere. Long table with chairs and armchairs. Preparation for wood or multifuel stove to be installed if required.
2 little steps lower forward are the twin cabins each decorated differently but with the same specifications. Each cabin has its storage furniture, wardrobe, cupboard and a wet-room with a shower, basin, electric toilet and cupboard.

From the kitchen, going back, 4 steps leads to the laundry room equipped with a washing machine, a dryer. The main electrics panel is also situated in this area. From here, crouching, a large half height space under the kitchen floor with room to store much equipment and tools. Concrete ballast is visible here, and is movable (not poured).

Wood floors and head linings give a warm and cosy feeling. I felt immediately at home, comfortable & at ease!

Size of the beds in METERS : forward Cabin on starboard : 1.40 x 1.90 - forward Cabin on port : 1.60 x 1.90 – aft guest cabin : 1.40 x 1.90

Headrooms in METERS : Wheelhouse: 2.00 – galley : 1.97 - Saloon : 2.00 - forward Cabines : 1.95 - forward heads : 2 m – aft guests cabin : 1.95 - guests head : 2.00.
