One of our featured barges from family-run boat builders Piper, will be making the trip to Paris for the Salon Nautique this December. The 49 metre Dutch style barge weighs 26 tonnes and has a kingsize bed, large galley and saloon and comfortable bathroom – and is well worth a look if you are making the trip to Versailles for the Paris Boat Show. You will be able to find Piper at stand 1A61. The boat is Piper’s most popular barge and was developed using owner Simon Piper’s experience of sailing the French waterways. The design, craftsmanship and attention to detail of the Piper barges is a must-see.
The sheer scale of the whole Paris Boat Show makes it well worth a visit but for people still planning their holidays for next year it offers the chance to obtain lots of information and gain some inspiration too.
