We have, with reluctance, decided to put our Boat Liza up for sale We brought her in 2007, in Holland, and have travelled down to the south of France, across to Bordeaux, spending 7 months a year aboard for the first 4 Years, then from 2011, have lived aboard all year, travelling to Strasburg, up into Germany, back to Nancy, followed by a year cruising Belguim and last year cruising all around Holland, including visiting the boatyard where she was built where she was lifted out, had the hull checked, the bottom antifouled with new anodes fitted and the hull repainted. She is now lying in Brugge for the Winter, but will be heading out to France in the Spring as we intend use her untill we find a new good home for her. She is a good comfortable boat for long cruises or live aboard and has done us proud, but after 9 years its time for a change.             Liza is an Aquacraft 12.60m x 3.65m  1.2m draft and air draft of 2.7m, and was built in 1986 by Driesprong The comfortable interior consists of a front Cabin with twin V berth with storage under and a hanging locker + full standing headroom to change . The Galley consists of a worktop with a 4 burner hob & sink, with plenty of cupboard space behind & a 24 volt compressor fridge and more cupboard under, this is opposite the Dinette. The dinette will seat 4 easily with views out of the eye height windows, more storage under, the table also drops down to make a double berth. Next to the Galley is the Guest toilet with basin and hairdryer, up into the Saloon there is an L shaped Settee that also pulls out to make a Double berth if required, with storage under, and a large locker behind with hifi & satellite receiver above with flat screen TV mounted on bulkhead, opposite there are more lockers and the interior helm position. Down to the Stern / Captains Cabin, which consists of a King size island bed with access down both sides & massive storage under, locker alongside with built in basin + 3 hanging lockers, to port there is the Captains toilet compartment and to Starboard is the large shower compartment.  The outside stern cockpit is large enough for seating 6 around the table for dinner, with the exterior helm position with excellent all round visibility and movable Captains swivel chair, also there is a blue winter weather cover over half the cockpit, and also a folding white Bimini cover over the whole cockpit to keep off the sun or rain while cruising, this has an air draught of 3.45m, which goes under most of the bridges in France. We have also had made white covers with windows as double glazing to all the windows on the boat that popper on the outside, as extra protection in the Winter. On the roof is the Solar panel which normally supplies enough charge to run the fridge, all pumps & lighting + some TV as well if needed, which enables us to stay on canal banks almost indefinitely, we just need to refill our water tanks every 3 weeks or so. The engine is a DAF 575 a 6 cylinder diesel, rated at 105hp and has been serviced regularly and drives fixed drive shaft through a Paragon hydraulic gearbox Fuel consumption on averageis from 2 1/2 lts hour on canals to 4 lts hour on rivers.  Displacement Approximately 9 Tons  Hull thickness 5mm steel  Keel cooling  650 lts of Diesel in 3Tanks  1000 lts of Water in 2 Tanks  Electric Bow thruster  2 x 180 amp Batteries for Engine / Bow thruster 4 x 180 amp Batteries for ancillaries 24 volt / 220 volt electrical systems Victron combination 1300 watt Inverter / 40 amp charger  250 watt 24 volt solar panel Gas detector Webasto diesel central heating system with radiators 35 lt Hot Water Tank, heated by Engine, Electric or Webasto And plenty of ropes & fender especially needed in French locks Any additional question or picture requests please msg me Many thanks Chris
