Our first architect designed Dutch Barge, this 12'6 x 65 boat is bright and beautiful. The interior is fully painted with bamboo details in the saloon and galley. We've worked with the customers to make full use of the curves on the interior in a way that can only be realised in a fully bespoke boat. Have a look at the blog to see more images.

Another Keelson style Dutch Barge, this one will be Category C, with a range of features including a powerful hybrid driven engine. The steelwork is now complete and hull is in our paint workshop primed battened out and sprayfoamed. Have a look at the blog here.
