Houseboat summary

We are proud to offer this authentic two-mast clipper, docked in a buzzing Rotterdam city-harbour, only 3 minutes from train station 'Blaak. She was built in 1894, originally as a sailing cargo ship to sail the waves of the Southern Sea. We are glad to say that this beauty was renovated several times and now is completely up-to-date, ready to give you an unforgettable stay in Rotterdam. And know that lots of city highlights - such as the Markthall, Cubical Houses, Maritime Museum, water taxi and lots of restaurants are just around the corner.

Houseboat description

With six 4-person and one 2-person cabins this ship offers accommodation to groups up to 26 persons. The ship is equipped with a large open kitchen and cozy dining corner so you can cook and eat together. 

However, is has not always been this comfortable. Until only two decades ago only the skipper and his family could sleep aboard. A large-scale renovation took place in the 1990s when it was converted into a charter ship. The former owner opted for an unusually comfortable layout with very spacious cabins. For example, each cabin has a en suite bathroom with shower and toilet, cupboard space and even a writing table. Aboard a authentic sailing ship, that is comfort!

The ship has 26 beds and is therefore suitable for larger groups. From 12 persons the ship is exclusively yours. There's always someone on board, in a different, private part of the ship. All rooms have a toilet and shower and can be locked. There is also a safe available for the guests. If you want to change the check in time, please let me know and I will try to organise this for you.

At night, there is always someone on board. During the day time you can always contact me by phone. There's plenty of information ready for you about the neighborhood, restaurants, pubs, the architectural, cultural activities and shopping areas.

I hope to have given you the best possible impression of the ship, but don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions - always glad to help!
