Houseboat summary

The 'Lilla Marras', as the ship is called, is a true piece of art. The beautifully refurbished and restyled lifeboat deserves better than to be merely called a 'boat'. With all respect for its original purpose, this ship has been completely changed to offer as much comfort and luxury as possible. 

The Lifeboat in historic Harlingen, offers comfortable accommodation for everyone who isn't afraid to stoop every now and then. It is possible to hire a private captain to sail you around for a few hours, but you can also just let your troubles sail away and float gently in Harlingen's harbor.

    What a boat!

    Not only the exterior of this authentic lifeboat is amazing; but you really feel its a powerful boat, still capable of sailing the seven seas. Truly remarkable experience.
