52ft 10ft, 1909 Luxemotor Dutch barge “Tist”
Over the last 3 years, I have fully renovated and re-fitted the whole barge.
The hull was professionally welded and re-plated in September 2016 at Sharpness docks and shipyard with a full survey is available on request from 2016 and valid until October 2023. This includes new 6mm steel up to the waterline.
The boat itself is very eye catching, and rare in the UK; with fantastic lines, cutting through the water gracefully when sailing. The new hull will most likely last another 110 years.
Tist has been fitted out with a completely new interior, new spray foam insulation and walls with unique curves so the hull shape isn’t lost. The L shaped sofa in living room pulls out into double bed making Tist four berth.
The oven has never been used, starter battery’s and 24v leisure battery’s all brand new in June 2019, the living area is all 12v but also includes 3 point plugs for 240V from inverter. The 12v wiring loom was made by loom Tec marine.
Insulation wise, the hull and walls are close cell spray foamed by cosy home, the ceiling is insulated with super quilt.
She has onboard:
-Bluetooth stereo, and a very healthy sound system with amp and sub woofer.
-Lec inlander fridge freezer
-Brand new kenwood oven.
-380l water tank
-300l fuel tank.
-6kva hatz diesel generator.
The bathroom is a fully tiled wet room with all copper and brass fittings, rain shower head and manually operated toilet.
Heating is a recycled gas bottle wood burner with hot plates which can also boil a kettle in no time.
The kitchen worktops, floor, ceiling, and all other wood onboard is all oak.
She has a very homely feel and lots of storage under and around the master double bed and below and behind the sofa. A hot air night heater could be easily installed if requested. Hot water is made by a Morco instant lpg boiler
This barge electrical system runs on solar power with 1320 watts of solar panels
She has a 1979 Daf 615 turbo engine, full service carried out 20 running hours ago. Duel steering and controls inside the wheelhouse and on the back deck so you can cruise along in the sunshine. In the wheelhouse there is also L-shaped seating area and dining table capable of seating 7 people.
She also has a bow thruster but needs commissioning. Her air draft is 2.7m and water draft is 90cm
Boat safety certificate valid until 2021
She would also be able to sail around the coast if required, and has all nav lights plus large anchor.
This is my second barge that I have fitted out and I’m selling so I can do the same again with a bigger barge.
Tist is fantastic and beautiful Dutch Barge. She is admired constantly from every angle. I will truly miss this barge but the time has come to
move forward.. located on the sharpness canal at patch bridge, Gloucestershire. Thanks for looking
