'Rosita' is a comfortable and cosy former fishing cutter transformed into a yacht with all modern amenities.
'Rosita' is a 12m long and 4m wide former fishing cutter, transformed into a very comfortable and cosy yacht with central heating, hot and cold running water, shower and toilet.
In the cabin you'll find a double bed (2m x 1.4m) and a single bed (2m x 90cm), a seating area with a table, television, a kitchen with a sink, cutlery, microwave and coffee machine.
However, the cooking stove cannot be used because of regulations in Amsterdam. There is a separate wheelhouse, where smoking is allowed. On the aft deck there is a small terrace with chairs and a table. Even with very cold weather the boat is warm and comfy inside.
The cutter is reached by crossing the roof of the owner's houseboat. The boat will be fully yours, from bow to stern, thus you will have a lot of privacy on board. The maximum number of guests is 2. Children and pets are not allowed. This boat is not fit for obese or otherwise infirm people because of the steps leading to the boat and into the cabin. Also know that this boat is not meant for drunk or cannabis crazed youngsters. Having a good time: yes! Smoking a joint, no problem! Having a party: no! If this doesn't scare you off, you are most welcome aboard and I will be at your service with suggestions what to do and where to go in this beautiful city.
About the area
Rosita is moored in a quiet part and beautiful of the old centre of Amsterdam, overlooking the Prinsengracht. The famous 'Jordaan' area is right here too, with its 400 year old houses. Also the best market in Amsterdam, the 'Noordermarkt', open every Saturday and Monday, is right next door. The nearest shopping street, 'Haarlemmerdijk' is known for its liveliness and cosy little shops and restaurants.
I am Friedrich, a 73 year old musician and writer. I live next door on my houseboat and can help you with information, tips etc.

Such a lovely stay, and it’s in the center of everything. The only thing I’d have to say is, be careful of the rocking of the boat. I’ve had a troubling and nauseating travel so far, so the boat rocking wasn’t ideal but eventually it rocked me to sleep :)

Fantastic place to stay in Amsterdam
Great place to stay - less than 10 minutes walk from station. Great character and comfortable accommodation. Very peaceful - I imagine other boats must be noisier with passing canal boats and pedestrians walking by, but this was perfect. Quite compact, so 3-4 nights was perfect.

Perfect hideaway in the centre of Amsterdam
I recently stayed here with my son for 4 nights. He absolutely loved it! It is the perfect spot to be close to the centre of Amsterdam but yet so safe, quiet & peaceful - I slept like a baby every night! The boat is less than 10 minutes walk from Central Station & minutes from a lovely relaxed area with shops, boutiques, delis & an amazing market at the weekend. Although small, the boat has been very well maintained & is very warm, clean & comfortable. It was a delightful alternative to hotels and provided a very unique way to experience the city. Friedrich & his wife were wonderful hosts, very welcoming & accommodating. Would highly recommend & hope to return in the future.

On the water.
Nice little boat in good location, very clean and comfortable. Microwave cooker, tea and coffee maker. I would have liked some small steps for accessing the bed area, rather than using the stool, I'm not as young as I use to be.

Cozy, authentic boat and nice hosts
Really enjoyed the stay on this former fishing cutter. I found it very cozy and the location is perfect to discover this city. Friedrich and his wife were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. I am looking forward to coming again! Thank you and 'tot ziens'!
