 Prospero is an ideal barge to live aboard in the French or UK waterways, she was built by Peter Nicholls, the well know and respected boatbuider in the UK along the lines of a Dutch barge with widebeam proportions. With the wheelhouse down she will also fit in all the widebeam canals in the UK..

At the moment Prospero is lying on the French/Belgium border and is ready to go tavelling the European canals straight away. If you wish to have her brought back to the UK then that can be arranged easily, we could have in the UK within 24 hours of departure by road transport.
