Broker's Comments

Tjalk for sale in France. Boatshed Midi Canals is happy to offer this live aboard Tjalk for sale in the midi; a full time residence for our vendor who has enjoyed this Tjalk for almost 14 years now. Due to sad circumstances it is time to let someone else care for this classic tjalk which has kept lovely lines and traditional features. A comfortable live aboard for a couple and guests or small family. Bright and airy, with almost no steps except from the saloon/dining area to the galley and great outdoor space for relaxing or entertaining.
Since i was on board in September 2021, the owner has carried out some more work, the hull has been painted to the water line see the recent pictures "October".
Both the foredeck and aft deck are spacious and practical for manoeuvres with easy access to the lockers.
Beautiful shaped coachroof and wood aft deck side walls make this a classic and charming vessel. Recently surveyed and looking to be in generally good condition. There are some cosmetic rust spots (see in my videos or photos) that are being attended to. Wood panel doors with their stained glass windows and carved wooden beams, along with the old wood floors, contrast well with the modernity of the galley or wet room. She impressed me as a comfortable and well equipped barge: solar panels, inverter/charger Victron, heating system (EBERSPACHER), ideal as a full-time residence. Also at just under the 20m TRIWV mark a carefree cruising home.
