    Classic restored Dutch "Tjalk" Sailing Barge now awaiting a lucky new owner. Currently in use as a delightful liveaboard and berthed near Belfast - Northern Ireland. Two double cabins with a large and spacious saloon and galley area. She is ready for new adventures!

    Full details:
    "DRIE GEBROEDERS", meaning 'Three brothers' is a Dutch Sailing Barge built in 1898 that has been recently and lovingly restored to an operational sailing and liveaboard vessel.
    The current owner purchased her in 2014 in the Netherlands, had some preparatory work done, then she was sailed across to England in 2015 for a more extensive refit.
    The refit included a complete re-wiring, new gel batteries, new galvanic isolation system, diesel tank cleaned and twin fuel filters fitted. The gas system has also been upgraded. Dimensions
    Length Overall: 16.0m
    Beam: 4.0m
    Max Draft: 0.9m
    Displacement: 24.0 tonnes
    Airdraft: 14.0m (approx.)
    Airdraft with mast lowered: 2.5m Construction
    Originally built in 1898 at the Van Duivendijk yard in Krimpen a/d Ijssel - probably one of the oldest shipyards in the Netherlands, and part of a shipbuilding operation that had 35 yards at one stage.
    Much work has been done to her since 2000 - with the last 5 years being the "icing on the cake" for this historic old lady.
    The condition of the hull is understood to be good. She was last dry-docked in 2017 and had a complete strip back below the water line and a 2-part epoxy applied before antifouling.
    Last survey was done in late 2014. Engines
    Main: BMC 2.5 litre four cylinder marinised diesel engine with PRM gearbox. Shaft drive to three-bladed bronze propellor.
    Generator: 6 kva 1500 rpm cocooned genset by BW Generatortechniek Tankage

    Water: 500 l
    No grey or black water tank. Accommodation
    Will sleep six with two double cabins forward of the saloon and two single berths from the seating in the saloon. The interior has a charming cottage-style feel to it.

    Large saloon area with L-shaped seating with a solid fuel stove as a focus. It also benefits from a central butter-fly hatch which adds plenty of light.
