About our ship ‘Le Songe’

In 2008 we bought our ship as a cargo ship from a captain who still used the ship professionally. The ship was built in 1961 on the shipyard 'The Winter' in Boom near Antwerp in Belgium. It travelled under the name ‘Transvaal’ and transported cargo through Europe on the Rhine from Basel to Rotterdam and in France to Le Havre and Marseille. The cargo consisted mainly of barley and hop for breweries, but "Le Songe" also transported other goods such as steel. With help from our family we gave this cargo ship a second life, and we transformed it into a drivable home. We have spent 2 years building, and in that time we lived in the place where the captain used to live, the same place where we now have the Bed & Breakfast since 2012.
