Dutch Barges

Exquisite craft. The perfect combination of traditional charm and liveable practicality.

Originally from the Netherlands, Barges are commonly known to be large and flat-bottomed boats. Truly, anything wider than a Narrowboat, can technically be classified as a Barge, however, normally the term is used for vessels that go above a regular Wide Beam size. Their main purpose was the transportation of cargo with only a small portion being used as living quarters.

Fully designed and manufactured by Nottingham Boat Co, if you like the look of our New Dutch Barges contact us for a quote or to discuss your options.

Nowadays Barges can easily replace homes because of their sizes and the high level of customisation that can rival regular houses.

Barges for most are the cream of the crop. These boats ooze charm and sophistication. The craftsmanship that goes into forming the steel of the hull is matched by the attention to detail of the interior design.
