In 1929 the Dutch brothers Manneveld ordered an and bought this specific sized barge at the famous Nicolaas Witsen Shipyard. The barge was specifally built use on the canals of de North and fit the Langedijk lock in Western province "Noord Holland". She called "Always Ready"by the brothers and was used to carry cargo and passengers. As far as we can trace her history she was sold in the fifties to Rotterdam and was fitted in the sixties with an new and for that time very deluxe superstructure and six cilinder DAF and a cosy , but basic, meranti interior.
In 1971 she was bougth by an Dutch entrepreneur who used her as an recreational barge and improved her with windows in aluminium fittings, a bowthruster. His daughter and son in law inhereted her and have taken care for this beauty for the last 17 years. They lived on it for a few years while building a house. (For modern standards she might be a bit basic to live on)
They decided to sell and i immediately fell in love with her and bought her. This month (june'18) I have taken her out of the water and have had her surveyed (rapport available on request), recommended repairs done on the hull, put on new annodes an painted her underwaterschip (Hempel hi build and Hempel anti fouling).
Her layout from back tot front: in the back the former skippers stay (cupboard bed style). Here you will find a double bed, storage cupboards and entrance to the machine room, The, for her size, spacious wheelhouse with sliding entrance doors on both sides in the back the entrace to the former skipperstay, the basic kitchen with stove, sink and fridge, and hydrolic steering. From the wheelhouse you can enter her living with on the left side her toilet, cupboard space on both sides, entrace to the fresh water and diesel tanks under the wheelhouse, a a built in sofa and entrance to the second bedroom fitted with an double bed, washing sink and three cupboard. In the front part of the barge. entered by the front deck you will find another engineroom with the bowthruster and room for an generator and storage space. On top of the former skipperstay and behind the wheelhouse there is an nice deck to sit outside with an stainless steel railing.
Headroom: 188 wheelhouse, about 175 in the salon and front bedroom.
She is very easy to handle by one person and has an average speed about 12 km/h (approx. 4 litres per hour )and an max speed of 16 km/h.
Tecnically in good condition, but she needs painting/ normal maintenance and maybe a female touch to make her a bit more homey .
Price is negotiable to serious and realistich people.
