Vagabond: I bought her 3 years ago, looking for a <cottage in France> with a community of friendly open hearted “bargers” who like good food and wine. I found that community in the Port of ROANNE one hour from Lyon. Vagabond is in excellent condition, only 534 engine hours on the new engine.
Now, at 80 it is time for me to move on to other projects....so, I sell. The previous owners of Vagabond lived on her for 16 years, during that time they renovated her. Vagabond is a cozy, comfy, sweet boat now with big windows that fill the boat with light. It is easy to feed and entertain 6 people. There is a wine fridge and wine storage. She sleeps 4. She is in excellent condition, come and see for yourself, have a glass of wine. Go to this link to see 360 degree views of the inside of the barge, many photos and details of her statistics.

Enjoy your life, have an adventure, try barging. It is easy, you will love it. And the price is reduced....so come...be brave try something different, now almost everyone speaks English, the romance is still in the French countryside with the cafes with the food and the music and the vineyards and the sun. Ride your bikes. Walk. Meet the people. Bring your dog. Feed the ducks. Oh, you will love it.
