A beautiful replica Dutch Barge, built by the prestigious boat builder Piper Boats in the UK . Launched on the Thames in July 2016, before crossing the channel to begin cruising the waterways of Europe. Hibou has travelled much of France and Belgium, and has also explored some of Holland, Germany and Luxembourg. One owner from new.
The dimensions of this stunning barge area are ideal for cruising the waterways of Europe. Hibou has a one en-suite bedroom layout with a sofa bed and day loo in the main salon, therefore perfect for live aboard comfort for a couple with occasional visitors.
Hibou has been beautifully maintained, and was lifted out and re-blacked in September 2020.
She is currently moored in southern Belgium ,in a secure marina with views of the world heritage boat lift at Thieu, next to the magnificent Strepy Lift. She will be moved to Burgundy, France in spring .
