55ft Dutch Barge
“Freule” is a 55ft steel constructed former Dutch commercial cargo carrying motor barge, currently moored on the outskirts of Keynsham. Originally built in Holland in 1923, “Freule” has been transformed over the years to become a home afloat, this vessel captures character and charm, typical Dutch design. With a huge saloon leading into galley, bedroom and heads, “Freule” has a very open plan feeling throughout making her feel spacious and easy to use space. She is in need of modernisation and attention in areas but the boat has the potential to be a cosy home on the water.
