Charterboat B022 ***

Suitable for 10-15 persons! Actually you can't call this boat a houseboat. It is a large sailing boat, over a 100 years old and restored in 2002. In wintertime she is moored in Amsterdam.  With public transport it's around 15 minutes from Central Station to the boat. The ship has cabins, within each cabin two single beds. Ideal for a large group. There are two showers and two toilets, a kitchen, a beautiful cosy lounge and a deck with chairs and a couch. Nothing is more charming then to cook mussels and eat them together in the warm lounge after a long walk trough Amsterdam! Bookings are possible from October 29.

In  the sailing season you can hire this ship (with a Captain and a sailor on board) to make a trip over the IJsselmeer.  It has a *** star qualification and promises to be one of the fastest Dutch sailing boats. It is also a safe and comfortable ship. If you like to book it in summer time (01-05 till 15-11), please send us a
mail and we will advice you about the availability and rates. Reviews!

You couldn't wish for better
by Gwen

What a perfect place to stay. At walking distance from Centraal station, ten minutes to town, three to the supermarket (Albert Heyn, nice) and in a wonderful, quiet, very A'dam area. Bus stop is in the street behind the boat (Westerdok line 48, not Barentszplain as indicated) but once we figures out the route, we never needed it again. So close to it all!
We were welcomed by the utterly friendly and kind Margo, who couldn't have done more to make us all feel welcome and comfortable. The ten of us stayed for a good four days, on a break from work, families and whatnot. We had a glorious time, and thoroughly enjoyed this unusual and very pleasant accomodation. Had some lovely chats with friendly people around and seriously enjoyed basking in the sun after a lazy Sunday picnic on deck. Heaven!
The boat is well equipped with a lovely seating area and well equipped kitchen. Everything is in fine working order, very clean and cleverly designed. The cabins are small and the beds are bunks, but funnily enough, you won't mind, as it is all part of the 'themed' experience. We all slept wonderfully well and the whole 'crew' would love to come back again. As in... come back tomorrow if we could!

The owner is very friendly and helpful , the boat is in a fantastic situation (10 min walk from Amsterdam Central) . We were a group of 8 lads on a stag do and it was perfect.. Highly reccommend it.
