We are selling our 42ft by 10ft classic sailing Dutch barge with 6ft headroom.
Sylvette has been kept by the owner of a nice little Marina near Rotterdam for decades, so she was very carefully maintained. Sylvette started her life as a cargo ship and then the owner and his son decided to convert her to a leisure craft 45 years ago.
She is a lovely example of a classic sailing barge with spacious widebeam living space. She has a small folding 2 seater wheelhouse, so you and your partner will stay dry and warm even on the rainy days when you need to navigate the rivers/canals, or on the sunny days you can have the wheelhouse folded down.
Her 6 cylinder Daf 575 diesel engine is very powerful, it is great joy to drive this boat.
Sylvette has been beautifully furnished with good quality materials. As you walk in, you will find a shower room/toilet on one side and the kitchen on the other. There is a gas cooker in the kitchen.
The living room contains hanging wardrobes and cupboards on both side, so you will have plenty of space storing your stuff. The main features of the living room is the lovely glass window and the hardwood skylight, making the room very special.
The gas heating heats up the whole boat very quickly.
You can find two cabins in the bow: both of them can function with double beds.
The ship is equipped with solar panels, 24V lighting, 240V sockets, shore power connection and an anchor winch.
The bridge clearance of Sylvette is low enough, so she can go on the canals without any problem.
If you are looking for a homely, cute barge with lots of character, do no look any further.
Sylvette will not disappoint you.
If you would like to see her, please ring George on 07897 824035.

For sale my much loved Alpha 32 Broads Cruiser – please read carefully as I have updated this.
Well equipped and spacious, she would make an ideal pleasure craft or liveaboard. I have owned her for three years and lived on her for two of those.
Since I last advertised her she has been lifted and inspected by a surveyor. An issue was discovered with the skeg that needs fixing. Not a difficult job, and would be cheap and easy to fix while having her out to be antifouled, which is due to be done.
No other significant problems were found.
She would benefit from a paint job, although she still cleans up well. Just a repaint of the decks would make a lot of difference.
She has central heating with radiators powered by an Eberspacher D5w. Just serviced and currently being flushed and recommissioned. A warm boat at the flick of a switch!
2 x 110ah leisure batteries – almost new
250w solar panel
Calorifier with 240v immersion heater, also heats from the engine.
Large bathroom with decent sized shower and handbasin.
Well equipped galley with full size cooker, microwave and Isotherm low draw fridge.
Manual toilet with pump out.
Shore power with mains sockets throughout
BMC 1.5 diesel, recent service. Runs well.
New bilge pump.
Stern gland recently repacked.
Four poster double bed in stern cabin.
Twin wardrobes and dressing table.
New carpet in saloon.
There are two bottles of propane in a gas locker at the stern.
All ropes are in excellent condition, and there is a life ring and mudweight.
Clean and tidy, though some updates could easily be undertaken. I have carried out a fair amount of work on Caprice in the time I’ve had her. She is now in good condition and with a few more cosmetic touches she would be even better.
The Boat Safety Certificate runs out in May. It will be no problem to renew it as no significant changes have been made to her since the last one.
You are welcome to contact me to arrange a viewing or ask more questions on 07990737023. I live nearby.

I am giving up boats this size as I do not need one now since I stopped living aboard. I will be very sad to see her go.
I have now moved her from her mooring in Wroxham. She is now moored close to Wroxham. Contact me for details if you wish to view her. I live nearby so can arrange a time at your convenience.
I would consider a part exchange with a smaller boat up to 25 feet.
Priced to sell.
