Jonge Freerk is a historic 1903 Dutch Barge, originally named Martha. She was built by two brothers in Sneek in the Netherlands as a commercial sailing Skutsje. Around 1924 she was converted into a leisure barge and owned by a famous Dutch missionary, Father Freerk Kamma. She has nicely balanced lines, constructed of riveted iron and steel and a condition survey from May 2023 is available to read.
Stepping onboard the large aft deck, which is covered by a removable canopy, steps lead down into the open plan living quarters, with the galley at the aft, making this a REVERSE LAYOUT boat. The 13ft saloon is ready for your own free-standing furniture and is fitted with a diesel stove (currently runs on Kerosene) for additional warmth to the gas central heating.
Moving forwards, you will find a shower/wet room and the bedrooms, suitable for a permanent double and a permanent single bed. It has to be said that Jonge Freerk is in need of some modifications to bring her back to her former glory and this has been reflected in the price. She would make a very comfortable home for two people and she is at a size that could still utilise moorings within a marina.
