We lived on a boat in the Netherlands for six years. Wonderful memories of the Netherlands.
If, like we do, you live on a boat then the human waste (AKA pee and poo) has to go somewhere. And so, we have a sealed (very much sealed) tank on the boat known as the Black Tank and, every now and then, we go to the ‘Poo Sucker’ which empties the gently fermenting contents of tank into the town sewage system. Dumping human waste into the sea, canals and rivers is not allowed. Pumping out is a very quick, easy and fragrant process. The image shows the machine which sucks out all the waste.
We put Lucie on the market in 2017 but then decided to spend another year in Holland (hard to leave such a wonderful place). Now the time for us to leave has come around and we have now put Lucie on the market again. If you like the idea of living a wonderful life on the waterways of Europe, then please click here.

We have decided that we are ready for a new adventure and our home, Dutch barge Lucie, officially goes on sale today. We’ve enjoyed four fabulous years on Lucie and we will miss her. You can look inside Lucie by clicking here. We purchased Lucie brand spanking new from Piper Boats.

This photograph was taken in October 2012 when the keel for our boat, Lucie, was laid. We have now been living on Lucie for over 3 years! We’ve just moved to our winter berth in Holland.
