Aboard our newly built houseboat you will find this cozy studio. You enter through your own starboard entrance. There you will also find your seat on a private ’balcony’. The studio has its own bathroom and kitchenette.
In 2017 we bought the wreck that was on this site. We designed a new ship to live on. By the end of 2018, all permits had been obtained.
The shipyard started construction in mid-2019.
In the spring of 2020, the boat was moved to the Panamakade. By then we had already been working on the construction site for months: on the construction of pipework and floors.
In December 2020 we moved on board, the boat was far from ready. The B&B was only able to open in March 2023, finally finished.
We’ve built a dream completely sustainable, with our own hands.
We would like to welcome you so that you as well can enjoy life on the water in Amsterdam.

About the area
The Eastern Harbour District used to be the cargo port of Amsterdam. In the 1990's it was transformed into a city district with a lot of housing, offices, facilities, shops and restaurants. It is world famous for its urban plan and architecture.
Nowadays it is a fairly quiet neighborhood with alternating owner-occupied and rental properties. Lots of water (of course) with matching recreation in the summer.
I am Gijs. I live with my family on the boat that we built ourselves, except for the hull, which was done by a shipyard.
We are proud to rent out a room, to you?
