Houseboat summary

 Make your visit to Amsterdam even more special, stay on your own private motor yacht 'Amazone'. Offering all facilities and comfort, the yacht will make your stay unforgettable. Staying on board the Amazone is a wonderful way to experience Amsterdam. This beautiful ship is no less than 11.00 metres long and offers plenty of charm and cosiness. We can accommodate up to 4 guests. You have the whole ship to yourself, you do not share the boat with other guests. Of course, we have strictly implemented all measures around the Covid19 hygiene protocol, so you don't have to worry about that.

If the Amazone is not available, check out our other three yachts - The Cozy Amsterdam Motor Yacht Flint - Private Yacht 20min from Amsterdam centre, the Amstelle or the Almaz. Private yachts in the same location and from the same host, 20 min from Amsterdam centre.

Houseboat description

As soon as you step on board, you feel like a real captain, especially when you get behind the wheel. And although the yacht stays in her harbour - you can we choose to plan a cruise on the small motorboat. You book not only for the comfortable ship's interior, but also for the many birds swimming by and the great view over the water.

The boat offers two bedrooms: the master bedroom with a double bed (197cm x 140cm) at the back of the boat and a second bedroom at the front equipped with two single beds. The master bedroom has its own sink with hot and cold water. Of course, the boat is equipped with a shower and a toilet, as well as heating.

You also have a kitchen on board to prepare breakfast or a simple meal. But: who wants to cook in a city with so many nice places to eat and drink. And know that in our marina you will also find a beautiful restaurant with a waterfront terrace and excellent food and drinks. Everything for a convenient and unique stay in Amsterdam!

The salon has large windows all around, allowing you to fully enjoy the expansive views over the water.

    Wonderful Host, what an experience

    It's been great staying for over a week in the Amazone. Better than a hotel room. Gros, our host was very attentive. A bottle of wine, some sodas and snacks were waiting for us and we always had Gros's full attention. A great stay! We'll do it again next time we're in Amsterdam.
