John Hume (JH)

60ft dutch barge




Headheight in cabin 6ft9 dropping to 6ft2 in the bedroom


There are few barges of this size and quality in this price bracket. JH looks every bit the quintessential Tjalk with sweeping lines and gorgeous design, but inside you’ll find a well designed modern interior with every convenience of a loft apartment. 


She was used as a static hotel boat and would be a lovely AirBnB option or holiday home, but she could equally serve as a permanent residence. She is fully equipped with central heating, a wood burning stove, kitchen with hob, fridge and microwave and massive hot water tank. 


There is a pump-out toilet and big water tank and  the open plan living space is fully furnished, all of which will be included in the sale. 


If you’d like to take her off-grid, we are happy to supply all your solar requirements, we will put together a quote to meet your needs. 


Power comes from a six cylinder DAF diesel inboard engine and JH is surprisingly easy to drive, even for someone new to the waterways. There is also a two cylinder Lister diesel generator in the hold. 


We encourage you to get a survey and we will facilitate this by paying for the boat to be lifted.

She’s available to view at Hemel Marina, HP1 2RZ
