Step aboard the 1934 Katwijker Barge, the ultimate DIY dream boat on the captivating Canal du Midi in France! Calling all adventurous souls and handy folks who see potential in every nook and cranny! This boat is longing for a makeover and a loving touch to turn it into a jaw-dropping floating haven. Picture this: You enter through the helm, as if you're about to conquer the high seas (or at least the canal!). Take three steps down into the open-plan saloon/kitchen—your canvas for culinary adventures and cozy gatherings. But wait, there's more! On the other side of the room, ascend the stairs to the roof-top terrace, where you can sip a glass of wine, soak up the sun, and shout "Ahoy!" to passing boaters. Now, descend the stairs to your future double bedroom cabin with its own en-suite bathroom. It's like having a sanctuary on water! But hold on tight, because on the opposite side of those stairs lies another set, leading to a second bedroom cabin with its own en-suite. Who says houseboats can't have space and style? Get ready to embrace your inner engineer and decorator! The headroom throughout is approximately 6 feet and 5 inches, allowing you to stand tall as you bring your vision to life. And fear not, the engine is still up and running, patiently awaiting its voyage into a brighter future. Now, we must confess, this boat has been vacant for a couple of years, but it's just a blank canvas waiting for your artistic genius. A hull survey was conducted in 2019, and trust us, the previous owners insisted it's in shipshape condition. Just ignore the clutter—they left behind their DIY legacy for you to marvel at. So, grab your tools, unleash your creativity, and embark on a renovation adventure like no other. With stunning river views, residential moorings, and the opportunity to make waves in the houseboat scene, this 1934 Katwijker Barge is ready to be transformed into a masterpiece. Don't wait, this opportunity is sailing away quickly! Photos and a video link are available for your viewing pleasure. Link to wall through video: https://youtu.be/QNTVZkJXOWM
