With the mission to widen the kind of living


MS-AVALON   – English build – German Flag


> Designer Andrew Wolstenholme:
The 15m steel cruising barge shown above starts as a personal dream and has stimulated a large amount of interest – and some imitation. The hull design is based aesthetically on the lines of the Dutch luxemotor barges but uses a double chine form to simplify construction. Rather than follow the conventional working barge superstructure arrangement this design uses a center wheelhouse and a second helm position on the raised aft deck. This is a similar style to that used on aft cabin motor cruisers and combines the outside living space that is so often missing from barges with a large and sociable wheelhouse/saloon.”

Reason for building the boat
After 20 years of living on sea around the world we like to come home for our own life and for living with our family, sailing the European waterways. >All of them and independent.
With this intention the ship has to be strong, the highest level (Categorie B), To be able to go anywhere without restriction, to live in a luxurious form all year round, and space to have company with our children, guests and ourselves.
Starting with a design which is beautiful, (being proud every day), and maximum ship dimensions that still allow to travel all over europe on the waterways. 

> south France (canal du midi) lowest bridges with 2,70m no problem,

> north france and belgien smallest locks (4,90m) with 4,60m no problem,

> summer time (weed in the canals) with 1,00 m draught no problem,

> Germany Rhine and Elbe/Berlin with 14.99m no problem.                                                                                          (! from 15m is no longer considered a "sport boat" and a special permit is required, also sport boat harbors with gas station can not be used.

ask, and you will find the unexpected. - but only ask if your are sure the positive report will be importent for you.





People live differently on shore. So they also live on the water. People are different, and that's a good thing.



Especially when they used to dream about a barge, they find themselves in a dark room, downstairs and inside. And all this on a ship where it is difficult to move. Think of most women having to do the line work when docking and no place to put the feet safely.  -   At sea, the steering position is in an enclosed wheelhouse. Not by sailing and not after docking, life happens outside in nature.

 After 20 years at sea, we had our own idea of how we wanted to live.



Similar to life on shore, most at sea live in a basement. Just like people used to live in a launch.

Instead, you can live in a PENTHOUSE.

There is now this possibility, exactly one,     MS-AVALON.



Don't act now.

Sit back and think about how you live. Watch the video to get an idea of what it means to be AVALON-TIME.
