Sjoerdje (sworge)


55x9ft Dutch Barge

7ft5 Airdraft

3ft draft

6ft2 head height inside


She’s called “Sjoerje” which is the Friesian word for “see”. This is a massive understatement as you really can’t miss her. Moor up anywhere with this spectacular Dutch barge and everyone will notice.


There’s a classic and very powerful Scania diesel engine on board so she’s very well equipped to deal with the choppy Thames, while equally at home on the serenity of the canals.


Even with the huge outside space provided by the front and rear decks, she’s still generously proportioned inside; she’ll make a beautiful and spacious home for a lucky captain.


There’s four years of BSS left and she has a cassette toilet. The original brass well pump is still present int he kitchen and in good working order. With summer on the doorstep, now is the perfect time to take on this fantastic project.


The canvasses are in lovely condition and you can fold them down in the summer to enjoy the open rear deck. Even with them up, the wheelhouse is flooded with light from the massive windows.

The hull has been coated with two-pack epoxy and we have just added x6 magnesium anodes. The engine is in very good running order and we will lift the boat for free if you’d like a survey. We can deliver anywhere in the UK (call for a quote). The boat is at Hemel Marina, we’re open every day except Sunday and there are always plenty of boats here to look at.
