Walker Boats Dutch Barge - Details

Dream Catcher has now been sold, but Walker Boats will be pleased to quote for a custom build based on her distinctive and unique lines in turn based on the classic shape of the Dutch Barge.

This design has a fixed steel wheelhouse yet an air draft of only 2.75 metres.

Strongly built from welded steel she would be finished to the highest standards using the finest quality materials with comfort and safety in mind.

She would have a fly-bridge utilising aft deck space for open air seating and a second helm position.

Inside she would have excellent living space and headroom, typically with en suite master cabin, amazing saloon with leather upholstery, U shaped galley with granite worktops and walnut fascia. In fact within the confines of the standard hull construction, Walker boats will be pleased to create your ideal craft.
