Vision Doeve Brokers

This boat was built as a Dutch inland waterways Icebreaker and is still certified as such. Equipped with three great diesel engines (generator) that power two electric motors which power the propshaft. A beautiful engine room with great, original technics and is well preserved by the current owners in an almost original condition and is fully operational. The boat is also very suitable to live aboard. The new owner is, in our eyes, along with the ship, eligible for a berth in every museum harbor. The seller has the ship very well maintained.
