Make your visit to Amsterdam even more special, stay on your own private motor yacht 'Almaz'. The yacht offers all facilities and comfort and will make your stay unforgettable. A stay aboard the Almaz is a wonderful way to experience Amsterdam. This beautiful ship, a ‘Spiegelkotter’, is no less than 12.00 meters long and offers a lot 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 the measures around the Covid19 hygiene protocol, so you don't have to worry about that. If the Almaz is not available, you can take a look at our second yacht called Flint.
As soon as you step aboard, you feel like a real captain, especially when you get behind the steering wheel. And although the yacht will remain in her port - unless you choose to plan a cruise with us during your stay, she will give you a real nautical experience. Not only because of the comfortable ship's interior, but also because of the many birds that swim by and the great view over the water.
The boat offers two bedrooms: the master bedroom with a double bed (197x144 cm) at the back of the boat and a second bedroom at the front with a V-shaped double bed (200x180). The master bedroom has its own washbasin with hot and cold water. Of course the boat is equipped with a shower and toilet, and equipped with heating.
You also have a kitchen on board to prepare breakfast or a simple meal. But again: who wants to cook in a city with so many great places to eat and drink. And know that in our marina you will also find a beautiful restaurant with a terrace by the water and excellent food and drinks. Everything for a convenient and unique stay in Amsterdam!
The surprisingly large living room has glass all around so you can enjoy the landscape around you: the panoramic view over the water, the famous and ever-changing Dutch clouds passing by, the reflection of the water dancing on the ceiling. No hotel room offers that for sure.
Here is a quick overview of the facilities on board:
- Free internet on board
- Coffee maker (coffee and tea is on board)
- Hair dryer

- Mini-bar (free drinks for the first day)

About the area
Our marina is located on the wonderful Nieuwe Meer, a large lake on the verge of the city and on the other side the famous 'Amsterdamse Bos'. This man made forest is a great place to wander around and enjoy nature, while on the other hand you have the energizing and buzzing inner city of Amsterdam. Lots of guest find this the perfect combination during their visit to Amsterdam.
My work is my passion, I sail my whole life and currently as a skipper in the canals of Amsterdam. How nice is it to share this passion with guests and let them experience the unique and beautiful city of Amsterdam. As your host I will welcome you on board of Almaz and provide you with all necessary information about the boat and of course about Amsterdam.

Everything was great!

We picked Gros’ boat primarily for the location very close to the Amsterdam marathon start, and it was absolutely ideal for this. A beautiful boat, albeit hilarious if you are tall to get around. It was lovely for a short stay.

Very nice steel yacht, everything in good condition, great beds in which you can sleep well! The landlord "Gros" is a very nice guy and always helpful with all questions! I can only rate the stay positively and would always recommend it. Greetings Jens
