Houseboat description

The boat was built in 1955 and was in service to rebuild and expand the Rotterdam harbour after the 2nd world war. In 2007, after more than half a century, it was bought by the current owner and rebuilt to start a second life. The Visithor still looks rough on the outside but the inside is romantic and very comfortable. In the winter he central heating system keeps you warm, and the wood stove, including firewood, adds a romantic touch. In the summer you can enjoy the sun and the fantastic view on the top deck terrace. The portholes have been replaced with large ship windows and there are skylights for natural daylight. Outside the ship still looks like it used to, with a loading mast and winch on the upper deck. The Visithor blends perfectly with its surroundings, the Maritime District in the old harbour of Rotterdam.
