Bargecraft have just had an unusual request that we had to decline. Tim and Pru's new barging venture on the River Rhone in May will unfortunately have to be filmed on another vessel as we're booked solid in May. (That will only make sense if you're British!) #clientscomefirst ... See MoreSee Less
Our new season starts next month when the Canal du Midi opens. Bargecraft already has 22 confirmed students for the RYA Inland Waterways Helmsman's Course and 8 for the French EGP course with Enam boat school aboard 'Somewhere' (www.enam.fr). We can't wait to get started!😀 ... See MoreSee Less
It's the end of the year and 'Somewhere' is resting in Capestang this winter. Having travelled 1,127 kms and navigated 640 locks during 2017, she deserves it!

Almost the end of the year, but not the end of work here. In planning our post-Brexit future, we've started an official French branch of the company and yesterday had our French lawyer and DDT inspector onboard. 'Somewhere' passed inspection and is now an official French passenger boat. We've never heard someone say 'C'est parfait' so many times!
Not a bad result as we thought the inspector would be in a rather bad mood as initially he couldn't find us despite walking around the port in Castelnaudary twice before calling - we then reminded him we are actually in Capestang this winter!
Thoroughly nice chap though, despite an additional three hours behind the wheel before he returned to his office in Toulouse. He liked Jo's fresh baked biscuits too... ... See MoreSee Less

We enjoyed meeting you and getting you through your Inland Waterways Helmsman's Course. Have a safe flight back to Florida and good luck with your new build! ... See MoreSee Less
