After seven years of living aboard Victor we now offer her for sale. Victor is unique in that she has many features not often seen on Dutch Barges. Built 2010/11 she was commissioned in September 2011. Since then Victor has given us faultless travel along the canals and rivers of Europe. She has every luxury found in a modern day apartment.
