PETRONELLA built in 1924. One of the first diesel engine powered barges. Known as
a Pakshuit Barge

Built by D. Boot in Alphen A/D Rijn Holland fitted with Industrie ‘Hot Bulb’ engine.
She was originally designed to carry fruit and veg for the Rotterdam trade and
doubled as a river taxi with passenger cabin in the Bows.

We sailed her to England in 2004 and restored on the Medway River.
