Vrouwe Johanna is a live-aboard boat

Throughout the boat we have alternative systems where possible.

 

For example, diesel boiler / radiator central heating and a multi-fuel stove for heating

A mixture of 240-volt and low voltage lighting and power sockets

Both 240-volt and low voltage toilets - one macerator, one sea toilet

Gas cooker and microwave (or cook on top of the multi-fuel stove!)
