Ireland Co Roscommon Ireland
Stylish and elegant family Dutch barge "Samson" for sale. Enjoyed for the last twenty years on the River Shannon Ireland as both a live aboard and cruising barge. From a working barge Samson was professionally converted in the 1970's with high quality fixed and soft furnishings. An extensive refit took place in 2004 giving quality and luxury befitting such an elegant vessel.
Samson's bright spacious and stylish accommodation makes her ideal for luxury family cruising or as a more permanent home. With her 100hp engine, bow thruster and 90 degree high lift rudder Samson is remarkably light to manoeuvre. Her low air draft and collapsable wheelhouse allows navigation to the smallest of harbours.
Drydocked in April 2015 for full hull painting. April 2015 hull ultrasonic survey and vessel general condition survey. Decks & accommodation painted 2017.
