Owners Comments

Noordezon is a beautifully maintained and fully operational Dutch Barge which would make a fantastic cruising boat for the European canals, or as a comfortable and spacious liveaboard. It is the perfect size and shape for cruising the canals and has dual steering as a feature, from both inside and outside the barge.

It is valued at £170,000 by the marine surveyor, who was extremely complementary about the build quality, finish and attention to detail on Noorderzon.

Noorderzon can be sold with the mooring or we can deliver to anywhere you require in England or Europe.

Please feel free to get in touch to arrange a viewing and make a offer, you will not be disappointed

Noorderzon has recently sailed through a full survey, which is valid until 2020. The exterior was fully painted and antifouled using International Toplac Marine paint. New anodes were also fitted. The hull was grinded back and painted using two coats of Vinyguard Jotun 88. Rubbing band to waterline painted with international blackening. (3 coats) Two coats of international antifoul.

Above the waterline has been grined, treated with Vactan, red oxide (x2 coats), two coats of undercoat and then three coats of Toplac International paint. Decks/ gunnels painted with light grey interdeck

There is some history with Noorderzon as she has been recorded in the Rotterdam Martime records.
