Colibri is a classic Dutch Luxemotor canal barge, built in Friesland Holland in 1931, and lovingly converted from her cargo carrying days. Colibri has been completely refitted in 2004 and a upon the splendid foundations we have added a touch of luxury and an air of relaxed elegance.
Colibri is 87 feet in length and 16 feet in width. Despite her generous size Colibri takes only four guests, thus affording space and maximum comfort to all parties. The interior is air conditioned to ensure your well-being.
Sleeping accommodation is in two staterooms with generous en-suite bathrooms. The beds are European king-size, or you may choose two twin beds to afford flexibility to guest’s arrangements. The cabins are furnished with French oak furniture with ample hanging space and draws to unpack into and feel at home. The bathrooms have hairdryers and bathrobes.
The dining area and salon are light and spacious, the perfect place to relax and feel at home, read a book, or chat over dinner and a glass of wine. There is a music system and collection of music, a small library of books, games and Dvds available to you. Guidebooks for the area are available for you to browse and help us to customize the cruise to your wishes.
On deck there is the canopied wheelhouse, where you may be shaded and chat with the Captain and be involved in all aspects of cruising the canals.
The large deck space allows for comfortable shaded al fresco dining, and the chance to relax and find yourselves in awe of the scenery as we pass ancient villages and vineyards.

There are lounge chairs for those who wish to take some sun whilst cooled by the gentle breeze as we cruise along.
Four bicycles are at your disposal for riding the towpaths or exploring the villages and surrounding areas. Plus our chauffeured air-conditioned minibus to take you on excursions so that you can take in the sites in the area surrounding the canal.
