Dutch Boats


My girlfriend and I live aboard our sailboat, but are planning on buying a small (less than 12M) powerboat to cruise the canals and rivers of Europe in the summer months.

I am looking for advice on dependable dutch steel boat manufacturers and what boat models to avoid.

I've heard from a Dutch charter boat operator to avoid Peugeot diesels, and probably DAF diesels as parts are scarce. Does anyone have further information on whether this is sound advice or not?

Since our budget is limited, we are looking at older steel boats, but want to make sure we get a boat from a reputable manufacturer.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
