EUROPEAN CANAL CRUISER

True Blue VI' is a Dutch steel motor yacht with two sleeping cabins, 2 bathrooms, galley, dinette and saloon cabin, fully equipped for voyaging the network of canals and rivers across Europe.

Equipment:

'True Blue VI' has a complete inventory for 'step-aboard' cruising. This includes bed linen, towels, cooking utensils and crockery. Two Dutch style bicycles provide excellent opportunities to explore villages and towns along the way. There are spare parts and ample tools on board to allow 'on-the- move' maintenance. The syndicate has developed a comprehensive 'Agreement' and 'Operating Manual' plus a comprehensive library and cruising guidebooks. The boat has VHF radio, AM/FM radio with CD player and external input jack. Almost all moorings in Europe have WIFI.

Canal Cruising:

"True Blue VI" has cruised rivers and canals in France, Belgium, Netherlands and Germany. The interconnected waterways take you to the heart of Paris, Berlin, Brussels and Amsterdam, as well as hundreds of picturesque smaller towns and villages in some of the best countryside in Europe. The cruising season is April - October, allowing 2-3 months cruising per owner every second year. A 'cruising roster' is attached to the Ships Agreement and each year's cruising is fine-tuned by consensus at the Annual General Meeting of shareholders held in December each year.

Shares in 'True Blue VI'

The "True Blue VI" syndicate has been running since the boat was commissioned in 2009. Some of the group's older members have decided to move on. There are now, consequently, several shares available for sale. A suitable buyer will become a part owner of an Australian Registered Ship, a member of a long-standing ownership agreement and be entitled to an allocation of 51 days every second year cruising European Canals aboard True Blue VI.



Individual shares are available for $30,000.00 each. However, should a buyer wish to purchase True Blue VI outright, and/or create his own syndicate, the remaining partners have agreed for this to proceed. The successful purchaser shall be given access to all documentation, including the "Ownership Agreement" and historical boat maintenance records. The boat is currently stored for the 2022-23 winter in a marina's heated shed in Maasbracht (NL). A current syndicate member will be available for in-country assistance in familiarisation and operating techniques if desired.
