French Canal Cruiser For Sale

Our Dutch steel cruiser “Estate” is for sale in Burgundy France. We have cruised this boat for two seasons in The Netherlands and 16 seasons in France. It is a very good boat for cruising the French canals because of the closed cooling system, which does not become blocked by weed or debris. And it has plenty of power to navigate the big rivers, like the Rhone and Seine. It is an attractive and practical boat that is perfect for two people living aboard for the season and it accommodates guests well.

As you can see from the pictures in the gallery above, the interior is very nice with parquet floors, hardwood ceilings and a comfortable and well-designed saloon and galley. The upholstery is in good condition, and there is an unusual amount of storage space for clothing in the aft cabin. The leaded and stained glass panel in the door of the owner’s cabin gives one an idea of the care that was taken in the building and refurbishing of this boat.
