Vagabond: Is a “barge of character” - Born in Holland in 1910. Her previous owners (also Canadian) lived on her for 16 years and renovated her to a high standard, put in a new engine and transmission. Vagabond has a new hull. This boat will keep you safe from the virus.
Vagabond can take you away from the dangers of cities, you will be in your own home, going to the village markets, walking or bicycling along the canal paths and woods, meeting the local people, welcoming them to your barge, you can physically distance as you sit in the saloon or on the aft deck.
You will keep your wine in its own fridge, cook on your own stove, sleep in your own bed. Winter and summer. You will be safe. As you sit on Vagabond’s aft deck, a glass of wine in hand, the ducks will come to greet you, the kayaks glide past, the sun set reflected in the water, the peace.
Now, at 80 it is time for me to move on to other projects....so, I sell this Vagabond .... a cozy, comfy, sweet boat with big windows that fill the boat with light. It is easy to feed and entertain 6 people. She sleeps 4. She is in excellent condition, come and see for yourself, have a glass of wine.

Enjoy your life, have an adventure, try barging. It is easy, you will love it...so come...be brave try something different, now almost everyone speaks English, the romance is still in the French countryside with the cafes, the food, the music, the vineyards and the sun. Walk. Meet the people. Bring your dog. Feed the ducks. Watch the school children racing in their kayaks right beside you. Oh, you will love it.
