Review of Anjodi barge

The European Waterways' Anjodi barge is a luxurious motor barge ship that was built in Groningen, Netherlands in 1929 as a trading barge. In 1982 the vessel, which originally carried grain, was refitted as a hotel barge. Currently, Anjodi is operated on Canal du Midi in southwestern France.

Anjodi barge cruise ship

In 1963, the hotel barge got the name Anjodi after the three kids of the original owner, Tiemen de Weerd, named Andries, Johan and Diana. The ship is constructed of Dutch steel - iron, with high copper content, that contributed to her longevity. In 1982, Anjodi was bought in Amsterdam by Derek Banks from a Dutchman, Fopa de Jong, for GBP 5,500. The vessel was then a retired trading barge, full of old WW2 aircraft instruments.

During 1982-1983, European Waterways transformed the trade vessel to one of the first ever luxury hotel barges in France at the cost of GBP 100,000. Prior to making the 3-month trip from the Netherlands to south of France, the ship was towed to a Belgium shipyard where generators, tanks for fresh water, plumbing and wiring were installed and shell infrastructure of steel was constructed. The barge was refitted again in 1997 and 2008.

Currently, the barge ship Anjodi offers 4 guest staterooms with individual bathrooms and a saloon. Crews quarters are located in the bow and stern. Anjodi has just 4 crew members: Captain, first mate (matelot/tour guide), chef, hostess. The Captain must have at least 2 years experience as first mate and possess French certificate of competency.

An interesting fact is that Anjodi boat was featured in the BBC Series about Chef Rick Stein’s 6-week cruise from Bordeaux to Marseille along Canal du Midi and Canal de Garonne. Famous passengers who have sailed on the barge Anjodi include Rod Stewart (UK singer).
