/ 23 :

Houseboat summary

And now for something different: meet the Northern Light Boat! This brand new houseboat is designed to give you an unforgettable nautical experience in Amsterdam. It's located next to the buzzing NDSM Wharf, just a few minutes walking from the free ferry to Central Station. Perfect for families and friends up to 6 persons. The name of the ship refers to the Northern Light that can be seen from the roof terrace, as well as through the window in living room ceiling. And the boat is docked in the Northern part of the city. So what's in a name!

Important note: this is not a party boat. No noise, nor use of the roof terrace is allowed after 22.00 is allowed in the harbor. No drugs of any kind are allowed in, on or around the boat. Please note that on violation of these rules you will be removed from the boat and you will lose your deposit. Sorry, but we have to be strict about this.

Houseboat description

The boat is located along the NDSM Wharf, a buzzing and artistic area along the Northern shore of the IJ-river. Here you will find many convenient utilities, bars and restaurants. We highly recommend Loetje, our neighbor who is serving officially the best steaks in town in his floating restaurant. 

Now something more about our boat. The key elements are light and luxury. So we have chosen to have large windows all around the living room and even  in the ceiling. This creates a very special atmosphere, with panoramic views over the many ships and yachts in the marina. From the lounge roof terrace the view is even better - a wonderful place to chill out during the summer period. Just outside the marina you find the NDSM Wharf with the most energizing music and art events, hip restaurants and bars, and a good connection with the city centre. The free ferry leaves every few minutes and takes you to Central Station in just 7 minutes.

In total we can accommodate 6 persons, quite unique for Amsterdam standards. You will be staying in a modern designed floating apartment. Just take a look at the pictures to get a good impression.

The boat has central heating and a boiler, powered by a small diesel engine. This is convenient for short showers, but we recommend to use the comfortable marina bathroom facilities that are located just around the corner since the boat is equipped with a 400 liter freshwater tank. The toilet is equipped with a pump and is flushed with outboard water, so this does not affect the fresh water supply aboard. 

We offer free parking space (very unusual for Amsterdam standards) and there is a bike rental where you can rent bikes for 10 euro per day. During the warmer period, we provide big pillows to use on the roof terrace.

Please note that our boat is not a party boat and no drugs or loud music are allowed in or on board. Also we kindly ask not to make noise after 22.00 since we want to keep a good relationship with our neighbors - I'm sure you'll understand ;-)

And you might have seen the steering wheel aboard - sorry to say we don't offer sailing trips with the houseboat!
