1904 60FT ORCA
IF YOU FANCY a widebeam with a difference, here’s a De Groot Dutch Barge with a beam of 9ft 10in. It is powered by a Mercedes water-cooled engine below the collapsible midships wheelhouse.
Orca was brought to the UK in 2010 and fitted out by Sunburst Boat Fitters and the current owners. The saloon and galley are open plan with solid wood floors and plenty of room for free-standing furniture. There’s a gas oven and hob, a fridge and a Belfast sink. A solid fuel Rayburn provides heating and additional cooking facilities.
The bathroom has a low level bath with shower over, a hand basin and a cassette wc, while the bedroom has a raised double bed with storage beneath.
