Unique living on the water, with the comfort of 2022.
Converted as a live-a-board / cruising and living.
The origins are a Dutch cargo ship (type: ‘Luxe Motor’), converted in 2021 / 2022, into an unique cruising watervilla with all the comfort of nowadays.
From a new Kabola central heating to luxurious heated outdoor lounge,
And from a powerful Vetus bow- and stern thruster to two spacious living areas.
A wonderful ship to optimally live and enjoy the life on the water!
Perfect dimensions for traveling inland to France, with a passage of approx. 330 cm. Due to the passage and shallow draft of 100 cm, you can cruise deep into France in between the most breathtaking places.
On board of the ship you will enter the covered outdoor lounge. This custom made semi-outdoor area is a fantastic place to enjoy the unique life on the water. The many large windows provide a truly panoramic view. While sitting on the lounge sofas of your own houseboat, you don't want to go back to an apartment in the city any time soon..
The covered afterdeck stays nice and cool in the summer thanks to the many separate compartments, which can easily be zipped open for a cooling breeze. You can continue to enjoy this seating spot in the autumn and winter thanks to the built-in heaters.
The cockpit and wheelhouse are connected by two French doors. The wheelhouse is a great place to make beautiful trips together. The many windows provide a good view while cruising. The original large steering wheel has been preserved and emphasizes the ship's feeling.
The wide staircase leads to the living room of this watervilla. The ground floor has 4 permanent beds, a spacious living area anex kitchen, showercabin and separate toilet.
In the current setting, there has been chosen for one master bedroom, were as the extra bedroom being used as a spacious storage room. If desired, this space can be used as an extra bedroom, storage room, study, laundry room, etc.
The living room is a cozy place to dine or relax at the end of the day. The kitchen, in a peninsula setting, is an extension of the living room. The cooking area and sitting area are connected to each other, which makes a cozy living.
The bathroom has a modern design and has a luxurious shower cabin and washbasin. There is a separate electric toilet, halfway up the ship.
The houseboat is optimally heated by means of a brand new Kabola central heating system, with heating elements throughout the ship. An extremely pleasant heating system, to live 365 days on board. The technical room is also heated, so no need anymore in making the ship winterready.
The houseboat has a very solid Mercedes engine, which makes long journeys, inland and abroad, carefree. The addition of the Vetus Bow thruster makes mooring in the harbor or lock child's play.
The Technical area has been completely re-newed with new technical installations. Everything is new and organised with A-class equipment of 2022. From new tanks, new Victron equipment, new Kabola, new group boxes, cabling, piping, etc. A new technical heart, so that you can cruise with peace of mind and live on your new ship.
