It’s all in German, which I don’t speak, but the pictures tell the story. Pretty boat.
Flickr.com is a popular Web 2.0 site for uploading pictures of your family, friends, cats, boats or whatever. If you want to kill some time, check out some nice pictures. This search will lead you to thousands of canal boats of one sort or another.
An interesting site with a listing of various river outing and vacation cruises on the European canals. Several of these look like a lot of fun.
A recent comment points out that Ledgard Bridge Boats have added some build videos and a "build cam" with live views of the build process. Looks to be night when I’m writing this, but might be worth a look 🙂
Another designer with some neat designs…
Andrew Wolstenholme has produced a wide variety of designs ranging from award winning production powerboats to classic launches and traditional craft for sail and oar, with several thousand examples of these boats to be seen around the world.
I especially liked the Wheelyboat Mk III – it looks like a miniature landing craft and is designed for use by wheelchair bound fishermen on European rivers and lakes… neat idea and a great way of letting a mobility impared person continue to enjoy the water!
The Association for everyone owning or interested in barges
Welcome to DBA The Barge Association and our new website.Â
- Our aims are to bring together people interested in barges and barging.
- To establish and maintain contact with other relevant societies and clubs, navigation authorities and trade associations.
- To represent the interests of barge owners in areas such as moorings rights, navigation permits and charges, provision and maintenance of barge navigations and navigation safety regulations.
- To seek benefits for members in the form of discounts on barge-related goods and services.
DBA the Barge Association is a ‘not-for-profit’ limited company run by volunteers and open to everybody, with or without a boat or barge, who is or would like to be living in, cruising in, converting, or just relaxing aboard.
The story of the MS Watergeus and how to convert a Dutch barge into a houseboat
A really detailed web site with a ton of information. The site not only covers the work on the MS Watergeus, but also Dutch Barges in general, buying and selling issues, and even conversion advice.
Since I have worked on boats, many people helped me with information. Out of respect for them and because I was helped freely, I’ve decided to publish all information freely on this website! Another reason are the costs for buying and converting a boat. You better spend the money on your boat then on companies selling the information to you! If you have questions, feel free to ask them!
If you are looking to sell or buy your barge, there is a ‘for sale’ section.
Living Afloat tries to explain how to experience and enjoy the lifestyle of living on water!
A broker of dutch barges in the U.K.
Their web site has some interesting history and hull design (covers the different major styles) information.
