MERGANSER is a traditional conversion of an old Dutch barge originally built in 1931. After sailing her from her home in Holland in 1990 the present owners have created a classic interior of mahogany, ash and other fine woods reminiscent of vessels of bygone days. They have achieved this without sacrificing comfort. Her compact cabins each have en-suite facilities of shower and WC, 220/240 volt power points (UK three pin; can adapt to French two pin) and ample storage capacity, and her saloon and deck capacity is generous, this latter complemented by a canopy sufficiently large to enable al fresco dining for much of the year. She is owner operated. She is fully centrally heated, air conditioned and has a well-appointed saloon with a varied library. Passengers are also welcome in the wheelhouse, which doubles as a comfortable observation location.
