37' Dutch Canal Barge


Nothing else like it in the SF Bay Area VREYHEYT II a fully restored circa 1922 Steel Dutch Barge shipped from the Netherlands in 2015. It has all the charm of an old European Dutch canal boat but with everything refurbished or brand new including a (nearly no miles) 2013, Mercedes engine and Hurth transmission, new water and holding tanks, water pump, stove, refrigerator and water heater, all NEW interior, upholstery, carpet, curtains, bulkheads and furnishings. The interior is completely turn-key with the hull well insulated. VREYHEYT II has recently been ping-tested for hull integrity and passed with flying colors. It has NEW Trinidad paint applied to the bottom along with fresh zinc anodes. You can move right into this one-of-its-kind old-world conversation Pied-a-terre for the weekend or as a live aboard. Must see to believe.
