History & Construction
This Dutch Barge was built in 1920 by a unknown Rotterdammer Shipyard for a Farmer family, to transport their Products to the Market. No engine, manually Tiller for the Rudder.
Her “second life” was destined to be a floating family home next to a dredger.
In the early 50's, begins her “third life”, a German took over the barge and transformed her in a charter boat to offer tours in the north of Holland.
After the death of her owner, -at the end of the 70s,- her "fourth life" came. Through the takeover by a Dutch family, who first used the ship for its intended purpose and sailed to southern Europe, but later used it mainly as a floating weekend home.
01/05/2009 we bought the KLENKES and that's when her “bright 5th. life" began. With the takeover, an expensive/extensive conversion and repair phase began where the two engines/gears and drive units were replaced, the rudder system was converted to double rudder with electro- hydraulic control (joystick), bow thruster was installed and the hull over-plated.
Diesel- and water tanks, boiler/pumps all Batteries (each 240 AH) have been replaced,
The entire electrical installation was also brought up to date and a new kitchen/stove and refrigerator were installed.
Interior; typically "marine", with solid teak wood and lots of antique accessories.
2 separate cabins, each one bow and stern, in the saloon sofa bed for 2 people. A total of 6 beds.
"Wheelhouse" with Steering position and 2 doors to the outside, designed as a lounge/dining room.
Living room with pull-out couch, small table and well-equipped kitchen with 3 Flame Gas stove, Chrome steel sink, shelf and lots of crockery/cutlery drawers
Furthermore, separate shower and separate toilet with manual flushing.
Exterior; wide "gangway" 2nd Steering position and spacious "terrace" (flying bridge), protected with bimini top (tarpaulin) against sun/wind/weather. Exceptionally service-friendly design with large/comfortable access (hatch) to the engines in the rear, as well as spacious storage space in the bow, accessible from outside.
