Broker's Comments

A well equipped 29 metre barge in the south of France. Boatshed Midi Canals is pleased to offer this Live aboard barge from the Forges de Strasbourg yard for sale in the Midi. Presently a spacious home but could easily be adapted for use as a b&b, corporate functions or weddings and still have room for owners accommodation.
Good mechanical order also gives the added benefit of cruising the Canal du Midi or navigating the inland waterways of France and Europe. French registered and with Certificat Communautaire until 2020.
She has her own mooring on the Canal du Midi and is close to the Mediterranean beaches.
For more information or to organise a visit, please contact, Graham WHARMBY, for Boatshed Midi Canals.
