    We passed a very relaxing week on this boat in June 2023. The region is really great to spend your vacation on a houseboat: super infrastructure (enough spots to stay over night even at no costs, everything very clean and in good condition), no critical passages, everyone (other boat owners, drawing bridge operators) is very friendly and supportive and you have only to pass one sluice during the entire trip.

    The boat itself is equipped with everything you need but especially when you are an unexperienced driver you have to be aware that this huge boat ist very sensitive to wind (and wind is always present in this region...) and therefore not so easy to steer. This is visible at the exterior: the boat obviously had some unintentional contacts in the past.

    Generally, the maintenance status could be slightly better: we had an issued with the engine on the last day of our trip which cost us some hours but Martin (the owner, a very nice guy) did everything to quickly organize a very resourceful mechanic so that we could continue our trip. Overall a clear recommendation to spend your vacation on Martin's boat!
