We love our converted cargo ship. The original captains area is your private and relaxed apartment to retreat after an exiting day in Amsterdam. It is
a fully equipped loft accommodated with central heating, luxury bathroom, fire place, modern kitchen, delightful bedroom and a superb view from the wheelhouse. Use the free bikes or nearby bus to get to the city centre in 10 minutes. The area we live in is being developed during workdays. The evenings and weekends are quite and relaxed.
The entire loft is available for you. You will have your own entrance, bathroom, kitchen and roof terrace.
From your private roof terrace and the wheelhouse you will have a spectacular view over the old wood-harbour with old warehouses at the horizon. It will only take a 10 minute bike or bus ride to buzzing heart of Amsterdam. In summertime don't forget to bring your swimming gear. If the weather is good you might want to take a dip! The wheelhouse is a excellent place to relax, drink a glass of wine and enjoy the view that never bores.
The area we live in is being developed (building beautiful apartments). The building activities take place from Monday to Friday from 7 AM till 17 PM. The trouble vary. One week there is very little noise, the other week there could be more noise. The evenings and weekends are quite and relaxed.

Hi I'm Femke. Together with my husband and dog I live on the Viator, our converted cargo ship. We both work a full time job. Our dog, Sjem, comes form the shelter but got used to the boatlife pretty soon. He likes keeping a close eye on all the activities going on in the harbor. He won't be able to come near the apartment. During the weekends there is always some painting work to do up and around the boat. We also love walking the dog in the Westerpark with a take away coffee in one hand and a fresh croissant in the other ;-).
We purchased the boat in 2010. The first 4 years we lived on the apartment that now is the Airbnb apartment. During these 4 years we have saved money and were busy getting the licenses to be able to rebuild the cargo space into a house. We really love living on the water. It gives a great sense of freedom. It will let you experience the elements (sun rises, full moon, storms, beautiful clouds) yet you are very close to the centre of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
We are happy we can share the experience with you and hope you will enjoy the environment and Amsterdam a much as we do.
Hope to see you around!
