This houseboat has central heating, kitchen in the room. 2 toilets, 2 showers. The houseboat is rented in summer for sailing trips. Therefore only available as a hotel in autumn, winter and spring.

This boat was built in 1897. It has been used as a sailing freight ship in the past to move coal, turf, potatoes, wheat and more from one part of Holland to another. In the 1950s a few idealists started restoring these boats to sailing ships again, but with luxury in mind. Very nice trips are made during the summer with participating guests in the shallow waters of Holland. The fleet developed to about 500 ships in Holland to the largest traditional sailing fleet in the world.
