Houseboat summary

'Rosita' is a comfortable and cosy former fishing cutter transformed into a yacht with all modern amenities.

Houseboat description

'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.

    Cozy stay Show original

    Living on this cozy boat made our Amsterdam trip something special. The central location allows everything to be reached on foot. Many thanks to the nice host Friedrich.

    Lovely stay

    We had such a lovely stay on this boat! The boat is in a fantastic location & close to central station if you want to travel else where. The boat itself is very cute and cosy with a nice amount of space to hang about both in boat & wheel house. Our host was extremely lovely!

    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.
