Due to a financing glitch, Thirza is once again available to purchase. She is a beautiful and luxurious barge that has spent most of her 20 years in the European canal system. Her size is ideal for French, Dutch and German waterways as they predominantly have berths for vessels up to 15m. Bigger vessels struggle to find suitable moorings. Proving herself to be comfortable, reliable, robust and eye-catching, she is ideal for a couple cruising extensively with occasional guests. Master cabin king size, double sofa bed in salon and a single berth can be created in wheelhouse.
She was hauled out in August 2020 for scrub, anti-foul and anode replacement.
Last survey was May 2017.
She is ready to continue cruising and the vendor is willing to deliver the barge to Europe - new owner to cover expenses
Owners would consider a twin engine power boat or 36ft sailboat swap/part payment from someone looking for a change of vessels and an opportunity to cruise Europe.
