This small, yet very tasteful passenger barge with its sleek lines was built to fit the smaller locks and canals in France and has been cruising the French waters ever since. In 2018, Steffie Kranz and Evert Jan Muurling, took over ownership. Their years of experience and commitment are reflected in every detail and guarantee that your vacation will be a pleasant one. The whole barge radiates a homelike atmosphere. You will love the upper deck lounge with large windows and the partially covered sun deck, the idea place to sip a beverage, enjoy an appetizer, and enjoy the scenery while cruising.
The Fleur was first put into service in 2002. The original owner, Jossie, had the barge converted into a comfortable passenger ship, according to her own design. Her female touch is definitely recognizable by the tasteful interior and her sharp eye for detail.
