MARIA is currently cruising the canals and rivers of the Alsace and Lorraine regions of France.  Her home port is Port de France in Toul, Lorraine, about twenty kilometers west of the magnificent city of Nancy. MARIA will be available for viewing  through the end of September.


In July 2016 she was dry-docked and surveyed to determine her hull thickness below the waterline. The survey disclosed an exceptionally strong ship with no discrepancies, no work required and considerable hull thickness throughout.  While out of the water, her hull below the waterline was recoated and her hull above the waterline repainted.


In June 2017 MARIA's TRIWV certificate was renewed through June 2024.
