About our ship home swap

Our home is a traditional steel ship build in 1921, we totally renovated the ship five years ago. The engine was removed and thus we created a well insulated and custom build interior of approximately 80 square meters. We have a double bed in the front and a lounge spot at the back. The kitchen has, due to saving space, all modern equipment except a microwave and a dishwasher. Its warmed by central heating, a bathroom/toilet and automatic sewage pump. The former wheelhouse is a great place to sit, relax and watch the water and passing boats. Our ship is unfortunately not accessible for disabled persons and the entrance stair is kind of steep, it is secured with alarm and warning systems.

About the location

We are located on the boundary of the historic city of Groningen (the centre) and the 19th century park is our back garden. The goods market, shops, restaurants, bars are within short walking distance. Groningen has been a city for almost 1000 years and is a lively student town with almost 200.000 inhabitants in the northern Netherlands. About two hours driving time from Amsterdam. Its cycle city number one, with an international Art museum, and large choice of restaurants, bars en terraces in summer. The northern provinces are green and great for walking, cycling and water sports. The dutch isles are reachable by car or public transport with a couple of hours and day trips to the isles are possible.
