In January 2009, we bought the 'Dageraad' while it lay frozen in the neighborhood of Bremen. It took some weeks before the ice melted and a course could be set for the Netherlands.
The ship was delivered to the Talsma wharf in Heeg, where it lay still for a year. In this period, we spent enormous energy on the design and concept of its new form and obtaining the necessary permits. We busied ourselves that year with demolition as and when it was possible, but the real work began only after the permits came in. The ship was then cut down to the maximum allowed length for its current mooring of 35 meters and fully gutted. We started with an empty hull and rebuilt from there, with full respect for the ship's form. The new construction has kept the form of a roof, steering cabin and 'kitchen'. The access to the roof deck (entrance B&B) has been renovated but kept its original form. Much thought was put into to retaining the history of this ship while maximizing the space inside.

Peaceful and relaxing houseboat
Sylvia was very helpful in giving us all the details before arriving at the boat. We were warmly welcomed by Theo, his husband. The room was super clean, one of the cleanest I have experienced. The breakfast was amazingly good and well presented. I highly recommend you to stay at their houseboat, you won't be disappointed.

Tolles Wochenende in Amsterdam
Wir haben ein tolles Wochenende erlebt. Sylvia und Theo sind super gastfreundlich und immer ansprechbar. Das Hausboot befindet sich in einem 1a Zustand, alles ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet und auch mit dem Frühstück (an Deck) wird man verhöhnt. Die Lage war für uns optimal, gut vom Bahnhof zu erreichen und schnell mit der Bahn oder Bus ins Zentrum. Wer Amsterdam abends am Wochenende erlebt weiß die Ruhe auf dem Boot zu schätzen. Wir waren bestimmt nicht zum letzten mal dort.

We had a super great time
My best friend and I spent a weekend on the boat and loved it! The hosts are super kind, flexible, helpful and caring. We got every morning an extremely nice looking and delicious breakfast. We felt very comfortable in our luxurious room and enjoyed a lot the time on deck with the great view as the boat is located in first line.
As well the way into the city was easy.
We loved our time at the boat, would definitely recommend to go there and hope to get back next year.

The greatest holiday ever!
An holiday at the Eco friendly houseboat Dageraad is as amazing as only a dream could be. Sylvia and Theo were so kind and welcoming, waiting for us till late in the night because of an unexpected flight delay. The houseboat, located in Zeeburg, was as described in the website, and the first impression, once "on-board", was taking our breathe away. A very loud "Wow!" was our first words. The boat has been completely renovated with the highest care for details and the environment. The room was spacious and very comfortable. We simply loved it. The view of the canal in the sunny morning while having breakfast was so romantic and picturesque. By the way, the breakfast was amazing too. Thank you so much for hosting us in your houseboat. We absolutely recommend it, and we will be definitely stay longer next time. Best regards, Federico
