wake up to a glint of sun on the water...


Large commercial barges are a feature of Dutch waterways. Many of the older smaller vessels, no longer economic to be run commercially, have found a second life as floating homes. As a permanent home or weekend retreat the solidly built Dutch barge has no peer.

Dutch Barges DBL Limited is not a brokerage. We do not take commissions from owners who want us to sell their boats, nor do we publish lists of barges for sale. We source vessels for people who want a Dutch barge but usually don't know how to get one. The total package goes from selection to delivery and covers everything in between. Contracts are drawn up by a Notary so proof of title is assured and clients' money is safe.

We have been doing this for 30 years and combined with our team of retired skippers in Hollan, our organisation is unequalled in experience and knowledge of Dutch barges. We handle no other kind of ships.

More than 240 of our barges are now moored on waterways across England, Ireland, France, Germany, Sweden, Belgium and Holland.

"It continues to be a pleasure to suggest Dutch Barges to
anyone buying a barge. Their reputation for
integrity, professionalism and knowledge of barges goes before them. "
"I can't tell you how much this has improved our lives. Fresh air, peace and tranquility. Thank you so much for helping make all this happen..."
Dutch Barges Limited work for you to secure the best boat possible to meet your needs - and manage the project through from purchase to delivery. What's more, we guarantee you'll be happy - or we'll refund the full purchase price any time within 1 year of delivery provided it is in the same condition.
