Here’s our new boat – Dutch Barge ‘ Marie Suzanne’.
At last we have sealed the deal on Marie Suzanne (to be renamed). She’s 18.5 metres long, 3.91 wide, a little under 3 metres high and 1 metre deep.
She was built in 1920 in the Netherlands. She needs some paint (inside and out), but she passed the surveyors scrutiny with flying colours.
We move on in a few days – thank goodness. And I’ll post some ‘below’ shots soon.
Thanks for your patience in waiting for the pictures, it’s been exhausting reaching this point with many layered, French, technical conversations and negotiations! We’ve had to become accustomed to ‘the French way.’!
More details and pictures soon . . . after a little sleep . . .!
