Beautiful Dutch Tjalk for sale, built in 1909 but modernised for comfortable living. Brand new boat safety certificate. This boat had a hull survey in 2016 (which can be viewed by interested parties), at the same time it was blacked and had new anodes. A plate was welded on as advised by the surveyor.

There is a large back deck area with good access to the engine bay, which has a massive amount of space which could easily be used for a large battery bank and water tank.

Oude Pieter is powered by a Peugeot Indenor engine which was serviced in 2016. The alternator, fuelling and coolant systems were changed at this time.

The back deck has space for a table and chairs and could easily have a gazebo style cover added to give an extra space in the winter. Access to the rest of the boat decks are along very wide, safe gunnels. Please note that the rudder will be plated prior to any sale completing.

A sliding hatch and steps lead down to the galley / living area. This area is spacious and light, with large windows and a number of opening port holes, and dog box. The galley is well equipped with sink, gas cooker, hob and fridge, lots of storage cupboards. Under the gunnels on both sides of the boat, for the length of the boat there is further storage.

The current owner has a dining table in this part of the living space and there is still ample space for a sofa and multifuel burner. The boat is heated by both the multi fuel stove (back boiler) and gas powered central heating. It is insulated with rockwool to retain the warmth.

From the living area there is a corridor leading to the first cabin, currently used as a child’s bedroom. This is a fairly large space with opening port hole.

Next is the bathroom with a bath with shower above, sink, toilet and washing machine. Please note that there is both a sea toilet (not currently being used and a portapotti). The boat is set up for mains water use and therefore is no tank fitted, but as mentioned above there is ample space to fit a large water tank. Hot water is from the gas boiler.

At the bow is the large second cabin. This has a double island bed and storage. There is a dog box above the bed giving more light. Please note that this bedroom has very limited headroom (see pictures).

‘Oude Pieter’ is a boat that gives the best of both worlds, the beautiful lines of a traditional tjalk with the benefits of having already been modernised.

Please note there is no mooring with this boat, but we may be able to advise on moorings local to here.

Viewing is strictly by appointment only. Please contact us to arrange a viewing.
