European Canal Boat Partnership
Here's a Canal Boat that has open-water capability as well. A 57-foot
Cruising Barge based on a replica Dutch Luxmotor hull. Perhaps a boat
like this would generate some serious Partnership enthusiasm?
The 2005 Euroclassic 139 Canal Barge Chocolat - a good boat for exploring the inland waterways of Europe.
Wanted: A 1/4 Share Partner in a 45-foot
steel EuroClassic style CANAL BARGE.
Currently lying in central France, this boat is in
excellent condition and has all the amenities for
comfortable inland cruising
Planned minimum four-year program to explore
French, Belgium, and Dutch waterways. We
already have three partners; we're looking for a
fourth experienced boater/cruiser to join us.
It's hard to beat the serenity and beauty of canal cruising in France!
This is a unique opportunity to spend two
months (or more) each year cruising the
spectacular waterways of Europe and venturing
well beyond the limited, often crowded,
charter-boat regions. All this in a boat that is
better-equipped and more luxurious than most
charter boats at a fraction of the charter price!
Note: We now have 4 partners. See update links below...
|.June 2013 Update - We're very glad we did not end up with
. a Euroclassic style canal boat. We have now seen several
. of these along the waterways (including Chocolat, one of
. the boats we considered buying) and they have several
. flaws. The inside steering has very limited visibility and
. there is no protection for the outside position. See photo on
. May 2013 - Page 3. More importantly, they have a very
. inefficient propulsion system.
