Houseboat summary

Be welcome aboard on the Adventure, and get ready for an unforgettable cruise or even a multiple day trip. Our ship was built in 1909 and is now the perfect vessel for a drink with friends and family, a birthday or a special multiple day sailing trip on the IJsselmeer and Wadden Sea. Departs from the 'Oude Houthaven' near Amsterdam Central Station. 

The ship has a capacity of 42 when sailing for a single day and a capacity of 24 people when on a multiple day trip. We sail on the following waters: the IJ lake, IJsselmeer, Markermeer, Frisian Lakes and the Wadden Sea. The crew is hospitable and experienced so no prior nautical knowledge is required.

Houseboat description

This 26 meter long clipper is a perfect ship for a family or business retreat. With every sailing trip we offer a dinner buffet or BBQ for the whole group, whichever your group fits better. This sailboat rental was built in 1909 to transport sand and gravel. During the late 70’s the ship was transformed into a sailing vessel which could hold guests. The width is 5,7 meters and the depth is 1,35 meter, making it a pleasant and stable ship. During the trip you can help sailing - there is always enough to do for those who want to be a real sailor - as well as relaxing and enjoying the scenery with a drink at hand.

The layout of this sailing ship

Beneath the deck of the ship you will find a common room with five tables and plenty of space. The ship also has a galley with a professional 6-pit stove and large oven, as well as a fridge and freezer (on request). The ship offers eight bedrooms, four 4-person rooms and four 2-person rooms. There are two toilets and two showers on the ship.
