Houseboat summary

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 no longer available, check out our other two yachts - Amstelle and Flint - in the same location and host.

Houseboat description

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
  • Refrigerator
  • Coffee maker (coffee and tea is on board)
  • Hair dryer
  • Kettle
  • Microwave
  • Cooking facilities
  • Mini-bar (free drinks for the first day)
  • Heating

    Fun stay in Amsterdam!

    We enjoyed our stay on the Almaz. It was perfect for our four person (2 adults, 2 children) Europe road trip. The boat was a comfortable stay with everything we needed. Parking for our car was right at the dock in a secure lot. The kids really liked sleeping on a boat. Gros was an excellent host. Two thumbs up!

    Great location

    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.
