Discover Tango
Tango, built in 1931, initially navigated on the canals of North Eastern France. In the 1950's she sailed south and was used to transport grain between the Atlantic and Mediterranean ports. At this time Tango was shortened to 100 feet, the maximum length barge that can navigate the Canal du Midi. When commercial barging ceased in the 1980's, Tango was retired in a small canal-side village. French born Tango Captain, Daniel Sak, had seen the barge abandoned as a child, when navigating with his mother. He always said it was the only barge he wanted to own. In the year 2000 that dream came true, when Daniel purchased Tango and lovingly converted her into a deluxe charter barge for up to eight guests.
Built in 1931, the barge transported grain on France’s waterways until commercial barging was replaced by trucking in the 1980s. Tango was retired in a canalside town when discovered by a 13-year-old Daniel Sak. Daniel fulfilled his dream, buying the former cargo barge and transforming it into a luxurious floating hotel.
