Roanne Port Auvergne France|
We have owned this barge for 6 years using it as a summer home in the South of France but have now reluctantly decided it is time to sell up and buy a camper home to explore further afield. During our ownership it has been extensively renovated with a change of layout offering a high standard of comfort. Recent purchases include a new kitchen (with large fridge/freezer, washing machine, gas cooker and hob), 48 new lead acid fork truck batteries, four 330 watt panasonic solar panels , victron inverter, 2 victron moppet controllers all new 2020, water filtration system . Rinnai gas instant hot water heater is used as a back up if required. there is a hot water system on the wheelhouse roof circulated by a pump which heats the hot water tank on sunny days there is ample free hot water. The barge is now totally self sufficient with electricity, hot water and water supply as the water is taken from the canal and passed through the filtration system and the ultraviolet light (no need to go searching for water).
Height is 5’4 in engine room so is possible to walk around for any maintenance. It has power steering and hydraulic bow thruster .
