As the largest importer of Dutch barges in the UK, we occasionally get liveaboards which embody the style, passion and excellence of Dutch boat building. Lotte has all the charm, comfort and elegance you could ask for.
With a nice, low airdraft, you’ll have no trouble navigating waterways which accommodate widebeams, she’s easy to maneuver and moor. If your plan is to continuous cruise, the solid, six cylinder DAF engine will get you around no problem with enough power to navigate fast rivers, as well as pootle along slowly on the canal. She’s a Kagenaar; these are famously shallow drafted, flat-bottomed barges from the Kaag lakes in the Netherlands (Kagerplasen).
Lotte has been very well loved and would make a comfortable home. She is absolutely loaded with kit including a water heater, built-in generator, hob, fridge plus more. There’s plenty of scope for updating with lots of room on the roof to accommodate solar. The toilet area could be converted into a wet room (there is currently a sea toilet, this will be welded shut by us to comply with UK law).
The hull is in excellent condition and we welcome a pre-purchase survey (we will lift the boat for free). We will be blacking and attaching anodes prior to her leaving the marina as part of the sale. In addition, we will run up the engine, check the alternator is charging, gearbox and steering is working and will make any repairs if they are required.
Come and see Lotte today and we look forward to showing you this and other boats on site.
