Launched in March 2019 in Belgium, LA-BAS allowed us to carry out our long trip project around the most beautiful canals and rivers in France, Belgium and Luxembourg. We lived on board in amazing comfort and safety conditions.

We are nearing the end of our wonderful journey on the waterways and are preparing new projects. It is with a heavy heart that we are going to part with this barge that we imagined, thought about and chose from the Piper range. We were supported, advised and guided by the Piper team who were able to translate all our expectations into the creation of this barge.
