Welcome to this sailing ship from 1897 in Amsterdam, and now functioning as a group-accommodation at a spot where it's hip!
In the summer months, the boat sails on the Wadden Sea as a charter. With a cosy interior and pleasant atmosphere you feel at home right away. The NDSM area is a new hotspot of Amsterdam, in a view minutes you walk to the free ferry's which will take you to the centre of Amsterdam! Hope to see you aboard!
