A fantastic opportunity to purchase a very original, and well-maintained Skutsje. The vessel is still rigged for sailing with two sets of sails, stainless steel standing rigging and manila rope running rigging. A recent survey carried out in April 2018 reported the hull to be in good condition with some minor repairs recommended, which were carried out by the present owner. The vessel's electrical system has been extensively modernized with Victron battery management, solar panels, and inverter. The cozy saloon has decent headroom for a barge of this type, with a beautiful barreled deckhead, and compact galley and handcrafted storage lockers. The main cabin features a double bunk and a single bunk with the opportunity to rearrange the layout to provide greater storage space. Further forward is a cabin/storage area with two bunks and has been listed as crew quarters, accessible through a top hatch or crawl-space from the main cabin. Currently, there is no hot water system onboard, but the installation of a calorifier is certainly possible. All the sails and other miscellaneous items are currently in storage. These boat details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered. Register with Boatshed to see 56 extra photos of this Dutch Barge Skutsje 42ft .
