A ship with tradition!

The Ali-B2 is a small traditional Dutch motor barge of the type 'Luxe Motor' driven by a diesel engine of the former Alphen Engine factory 'De Industrie'.
She is launched in 1926 for carrying cargoes along Dutch and German inland waterways. In the winter of 1991/92 she has lovingly and professionally been converted into a homey charter barge for 12 guests and keeping her traditional charm.
The Ali-B2 attracts attention because of her beautiful line and typical sound of the engine.
