The grand cru of all vacations
The hull design of the Saroche was the first commercial barge design to be purpose built to be driven by internal combustion engine power. Hence the word "Luxe" (luxury) motor.
This style of hull was very popular in Holland during the 1920's and 1930's most of the hulls were built at lengths of 25 to 30 metres. Saroche is one of the few that were built to a length of 39 metres for trading and cruising in France and is one of a very few with the original length still afloat.
