Sailing ship summary

To meet the rising demand for larger houseboat rentals in Amsterdam, we have renovated this wonderful former freight ship into a luxury boat with no less than 24 beds. Four bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom and toilet, while the other four bedrooms have a shared toilet and shower. This layout makes is very suitable for larger groups of friends and families who want to have an unforgettable houseboat holiday in Amsterdam. 

The first night is spent on the water, a short distance from where the ship is docked. Here we will anchor and you are assured to have a great night with your friends or family. You can have a BBQ, party and if the weather permits you can, of course, go swimming. On request, we can also go sailing the IJsselmeer and/or moor in a city-center harbor. Please check the 'Extras' for the various options.

Note: the photos are taken during the end phase of the renovation, so it will actually look better than it does on the pics.

Sailing ship description

We are able to fulfill (almost) every wish when it comes to customized houseboat holidays in Amsterdam. If you want to visit our wonderful city and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere aboard a ship, within the proximity of the city center, you will like our standard package. You will get aboard and the first night of your stay will be spent anchored on the lake after we will moor the next morning so you can head for the city center of Amsterdam.

And if you are into a more active holiday, get ready for a genuine sailing experience, starting in Amsterdam.


Option A: Stay Docked in Amsterdam 

Enjoy the rural and beautiful Northern part of Amsterdam, a wonderful area for relaxing, yet being close to the vibrant Amsterdam city center. A unique part of Amsterdam with amazing wide views over both the water and the green fields behind you.

The ship is docked in our regular dock at Durgerdam/Amsterdam North. In our opinion close to Amsterdam City Centre, you have access to a complete private place with terrace, BBQ (note: we light it up for you, but you have to arrange the meat yourself), possibility to swim - all this for a very competitive rate.


You will also find a bike rental nearby. Amsterdam is a beautiful city to travel by bike, many locals and tourists use bikes for sightseeing and travel. We can help you to organize that and have the bicycles/scooters at the ship when you arrive.

Option B: Enjoy one night on the lake to celebrate and party

When the group wants to organize a party (like hen or stag party) for one night, we can take the ship to the lake drop our anchor and the group can have a swim, we can start the BBQ and we will stay the whole night on the lake. The next day we could go to the harbor of Amsterdam and dock closer to the city, we stay there for one night. The next day the group can check-out close to the city or sail with the ship back to our regular dock at Durgerdam for the check-out.
