About the area
Enjoy natural beauty, enjoy water sports or simply relax: the Westeinderplassen is a large and unique water sports area with many marinas, restaurants and a real Surf Island in the bay. A versatile recreation area where you can completely relax, or just let off steam. Let yourself through the undiscovered area of the Randstad.
Fort bij Kudelstaart had the function of defending the Herenweg and Westeinderplassen. Many interior elements have been preserved in the main building. The fort at Kudelstaart was completed in 1906.
In addition to the two blown up turret buildings, there are two concrete artillery positions in the front wall. The wooden benches of the shelters are still there.
There are many cycling and walking opportunities in the vicinity of the Westeinderplassen. For hiking enthusiasts, there are various routes to be found at Visit Aalsmeer.
The boat is also located on the Vuurlijnpad hiking trail, so you can start your hiking route directly from the Luxury 'viskotter' on UNESCO island with Fort. More info: Heerlijk-wandelen-langs-vuurlijnpad
You can connect to the bicycle junction network from the boat. You can easily map out your own route on the website and via the Fietsroutenetwerk app. You can take into account the length and duration of your trip. There are a number of places where bicycles can be rented to see the most beautiful places in the area.
The sea, rivers, lakes, streams: as soon as we can, we sprint straight to the nearest water source we can find. Why? Because water has the ability to turn chaos into calm.
Boating and being on the water typifies us and our family. Together we run a nightlife in the center of Bodegraven. A busy life, but with ease we let go of the hustle and bustle in nature and on the water.
We have known from an early age: as soon as you sail, the daily grind is gone. The wind in your hair, taking a dip in natural water, drying in the sun, playing games while the rain patters against the windows or watching the storm with a good glass of red wine.
You can experience nature to the fullest by the water: water relaxes.
We are ready for you
For many of our guests, sleeping on a boat is a new experience. Our boats are equipped with extensive information. Our guests rate us highly. Due to our small-scale setup, we always guarantee a personal approach.
A malfunction or defect during your stay can occur. The technology in every ship is complex and largely self-sufficient. Unfortunately, a defect cannot always be foreseen, despite careful maintenance. Although a defect is fortunately rare, we have always succeeded in solving it on the same day. As entrepreneurs, we can organize our time flexibly and because of our experience we often know how to solve the malfunction ourselves.
Experience it yourself: just add water
How it started…
When our company had to close in 2020 due to the corona measures, we decided that we would like to share our water experience with others. We started building the Gloria in the first lockdown. From a completely old hull to a self-sufficient boat. We did this ourselves with lots of love and with the whole family. After months of many jobs, our project was completed and the Gloria can show our guests in all its glory every day how beautiful she is.
In the summer of 2020, our company was allowed to partially open again. But we foresaw another major lockdown in the winter. Because sitting still does not suit us, we were looking for a new project. It became the Omega. In 4 full sailing days from Groningen to Bodegraven. 300 kilometers and in the 90 bridges and locks. Armed with sleeping bags, a lot of technology and water, we went on the adventure again with the whole family.
And indeed, in the autumn there was another lock-down and we set our teeth in this old Viskotter. Full of wonderful ideas, we are converting this boat into a true wellness boat with a wood-fired sauna.

We had a great time on the Gloria boat. It is in a beautiful location. We loved the sunrise and sunset, the walk around Brassemermeer, the decoration in the boat and the touches of attention. The neighbors of the other boats were lovely. The nearby Wagenaar bar and restaurant is a very good address. We had some issues with the hot water in the shower but I guess that's usual on a boat. The bedding was particularly comfortable. I loved my road trip in NL and staying at the Gloria was part of this great experience. Dutch are much more welcoming than French and I can't wait to come back to visit the other part of the country (south and north-east). And why not booking another of your boats? Thank you for everything!
