Broker's Comments

We are very pleased to have been asked to list this fabulous live aboard Tjalk on behalf of the Owners. Built in 1923, this lovely barge has been their home for the last ten years during which time she has extensively cruised the English rivers and canals, and, for the past 3 years, the French waterways.

She has a large rear deck and comfortable wheelhouse and everything necessary for inland or coastal cruising.

There are two double cabins, a bathroom with a bath and shower, separate toilet with macerator tank/sea facility. A large light , airy lounge/ galley main cabin.

Storage cupboards to either side of all cabins give masses of space for stowage. A further 2 berths are available in the 6 seater wheelhouse. The saloon is heated/cooled with air conditioning, and there is a diesel-powered Kabola central heating system.

She is powered by a Kromhout (Dutch Gardner) 4cyl engine. She is fitted with a 24v bow thruster. 4 large solar panels provide ample power for the 12/24/240v electrics. There's a large 24v leisure battery bank in bow locker.

Dry docked, blacked and new anodes in Sept 2020. Boat Safety in Dec 2020.

I can highly recommend taking a closer look at this super vessel.

The Owner would be happy to deliver her anywhere on the east or south coast of Britain or to Calais for expenses cost only.
