Twee Gebroeders, or ‘Two Brothers’ in English, is a 64ft fully restored Dutch Sailing Barge (a Skutsje) based on the iconic waterfront at The Tidemill in Woodbridge, Suffolk. Absolutely no expense has been spared in this renovation!
She offers comfortable self-catering accommodation for up to 4 in 2 cabins; 1 double and 1 twin. She also has a modern shower room, open saloon with a beautiful range cooker and outside there’s a lovely open cockpit with teak seating to relax, unwind and enjoy the views of the river and The Tidemill. All of the bespoke cabinetry inside was hand-crafted by a local furniture maker and she features wonderful handmade tiles in the shower room in the Dutch Delft style, in keeping with her heritage.
Please note that the bedrooms are cabins as she is a narrow barge. The double is a really comfy standard double memory foam mattress, and the singles are just small singles (also comfy memory foam), ideally suited for kids, but can accommodate adults.
We welcome up to three dogs on board and we have a reputation for combining luxury, with a highly open, dog-friendly approach. The best of both worlds for you and your dogs.
She was lovingly restored in 2008 from the hull upwards and no expense was spared, including all of the cabinetry and the centrepiece of the saloon, the fabulous cast iron oil fired range supplying heating, hot water and cooking on board.
Twee Gebroeders is moored so this is not a sailing holiday. She is static but due to her size you will not really feel her moving.
Woodbridge is a little town with a big personality where you will find plenty to see and do. The Waterfront and quayside is a colourful mix of vessels from barges to sailing yachts presided over by the towns iconic Tidemill. Step off Twee Gebroeders and you will find yourself in the impressive new ‘Whistocks’ leisure development built on the historic boatyard, with cafe’s and coffee shops a stones throw away.
