'Rosie' is a traditional Boeieraak built in 1903, we have had her for 17 years but recognise that our needs are changing and so reluctantly she is looking for a new caretaker for the next chapter of her long life. She is a very pretty small barge offering cruising in comfort for two with occasional visitors or good liveaboard. Perfect size for most moorings in Europe which are often limited to 15 metres, she's a good buy for 1st time barge owners, inexpensive to licence and easy to handle.
