Hull Material:

1914 (stated) Converted Dutch sailing barge for sale.Virtually New Hull!

During a recent survey (2020) it was revealed that some over plating was required. Due to the age of the boat, it was decided to over plate the entire underwater section, so now the hull is as good as new!

A new solid water tank has been fitted to replace the collapsible tank, so the boat is now 'ready to go'. A comfortable and attractive cruiser or 'live aboard'.

Price drop by £4950 in June 2022 to reflect the fact that some light cosmetic work is required.


'Gypsy' is a Westlander Tjalk design, built as a sailing barge and converted to a motor barge with live aboard accommodation.
