BOAT HOTEL B022 ***
This boat hotel is suitable for 10-15 persons! The large sailing boat is over a 100 years old and lovingly restored by the owner. In winter time she is moored in Amsterdam on the KNSM island on a private jettty of an authentic old shipyard. Therefor car parking is free! It's a beautiful and idyllic spot with a great view, overlooking the skyline of Amsterdam. The NDSM area emerged the last 5 years as one of the hippest and most creative neighbourhoods in Amsterdam, the place to be for festivals and cutural events. Two minutes walk from the boat you will find café 'Noorderlicht'; an organic restaurant that has been serving sustainable and organic meals since forever. There are often live bands in the evening. Slighty further you will find 'Pllek', a restaurant made from shipping containers, with great food and good music. A bakery and supermarket are also nearby.
A ferry from Central Station takes you in 9 minutes to the island, every hour, day and night. So no worries about getting home after a night in town.
The ship has 7 cabins, each equipped with 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 beats preparing mussels on the ship and eat them together in the warm lounge after a long walk trough Amsterdam! .
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 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!
