I've never really liked the expression - Keep It Simple is great but why Stupid? It seems unnecessarily disparaging. This boat however really had applied the first part of that expression to really good effect.
Based on a traditional open work boat, many of which were made of steel, powered by a small and simple inboard diesel at around 30 feet long this is a great boat for enjoying the rivers, canals and inland waterways in Holland.
With what looked like a car seat mounted at the stern to provide a comfortable helm from which to enjoy the passing scenery. There is something very appealing about camping afloat like this, you could just imagine waking up to a fine morning in some tranquil spot, bacon frying cup of tea - perfect.
