Gezina Elizabeth is a charming Dutch barge originally constructed in Holland in 1915 and offers a completely unique lifestyle and opportunity to own an individual and distinctive home.
Having spent her early life as a working barge, she was retired from active life and sailed to Guernsey; subsequently an extensive refit was carried out and the tasteful yet exquisite transformation into its current configuration took place.
The entrance to this stunning canal barge is to be found at the after end of the vessel and is covered with a canvas bimini which can be retracted to create an open-deck environment and an ideal space to store outdoor shoes and wellies after a crisp winter’s walk.
A set of beautiful, ornate double doors open into the galley and wheelhouse. The galley is exquisitely finished with hand-constructed wood units, solid oak work surfaces, a butler sink and a range cooker with two ovens (one electric, one gas) and a gas stove with 5 burners.
Large portholes line both sides of the galley flooding the area with welcoming light and are fitted with bespoke shutters for meals with friends on a cosy autumn evening.
The wheelhouse contains the helm and therefore all the equipment necessary to move the boat should the new owner wish to. The vessel is fitted with a Ford 6-cylinder diesel engine and can achieve a speed of up to 6 knots.
A small set of steps leads below to the saloon which is a large, extraordinarily well finished and comfortable space, ideal for relaxing and enjoying the warmth of the log burner and the pristine tranquillity of quiet evenings on board.Read More
