Max Van der Sloot (1986-2017)

Canal Boat - - Letters -

Liveaboard boater Max Van der Sloot was taken on his fi­nal jour­ney to Slough Cre­ma­to­rium on a 1950 Ley­land Beaver. The main rea­son for choos­ing the 67-year-old lorry was that the MXV 610 reg­is­tra­tion num­ber closely matched his ini­tials.

Max was born in Hilling­don, left school at 16 years old and spent the next two years ren­o­vat­ing his GRP cabin cruiser Lol­lipop, which then be­came his home, moored on the Thames.

He lost his life in tragic cir­cum­stances on his friend’s river­boat. He is deeply missed by his mum Kaye, his dad Peter and his brothers Guy and Ross.
