Dutch Barga Open Water Cruiser

4 Guests
2 Cabins


This Original River Barge was built in 1915 and when retired but soon discovered in her scrap- yard by present owner Mr V.S Gilbert ( Belgian ), adventurer and perhaps one of best engineers and architects in this field.

İt took more or less 4 years from 1972 to 1978 to rebuild the entire hull, replace all steel plates, and more over to add keel and anti-wobbling blades. The rig designed by Mr Gilbert matches her style and is refurbished by all means providing most comfortable life onboard for him and his wife moreover easy to handle only by 2 of them with all electric winches.

Please note that she is insured 5.000.000 Euro in Holland By Schaderverzekeringen N.V

Now we are looking for another adventurer to continue this Viking C saga / or even keep her as a commercial day sailor as she is The One Head-turner in every location she is anchoring.
