House-Boat B147 ***

Houseboat 'Marjolein' was originally a cargo boat, built in 1913 in Wou-
brugge on the shipyard of Widow Boot. The boat was originally called 'Rival', but Rob renamed her 'Marjolein' after his longtime friend and niece. After a thorough inspection and maintenance operation on the wharf, he started to prepare the boat for a Bed & Breakfast. There are 2 bedrooms, the boat is suitable for 4 persons. The boat's interior is designed in typical ship-like mahogany walls and authentic Art Deco/Nouveau details, upgraded to the standards of these days. But it retained its typical character, with sometimes narrow corridors, irregular shapes and typical ship-like details.

Spending time on deck is an event in itself, from Spring to Autumn, and even sunny Winter days. Hundreds of small and larger boats pass you by on this junction of several canals in the heart of Amsterdam. Because the nearby bridges are quite narrow and low, there are no big cargo boats to disturb your peace.

The boat is moored on the Amstel River, nearby the Rembrandtsquare, the Hermitage, the Munttower and the flower market, 10 minutes walk to the Damsquare.

Idealer Ausgangspunkt
by Franz

Das Boot ist gut ausgerüstet wie ein übliches Appartement. Wer sich an den vielen persönlichen Sachen des Besitzers nicht stört kann sich wie zu Hause fühlen. Es ist ruhig gelegen und idealer Ausgangspunkt um die Stadt zu erkunden. Ds Boot ist auch mit dem Auto zu erreichen um kurz das Gepäck aus- oder einzuladen. Uns (4 Personen über 60) hat es sehr gut gefallen.

Spring in Amsterdam
by David Johnson

We stayed on Rob's boat recently and had a terrific time. It is centrally located and you can walk to the old town. The boat is very close to public transportation and steps from many restaurants. As long as you are able to negotiate a few stairs and some tight spaces (it is a boat!), this is an exciting and original choice for housing. Rob was a wonderful host and supplied us with all the niceties of home.
