Throughout the years, many people from all over the world, sailed with us or slept on board. On this page you read their comments.
Rob did an amazing job of giving us a personal and unique experience aboard his antique sailing vessel while introducing us to Dutch life , history and culture. He was very welcoming as were his crew of friends who came along to assist. He made the experience personal and went above and beyond. I would love to come back and stay aboard next time we visit, since that is an option. Even though we were a small group, Rob pulled out all the stops to make the trip a very special time. I definitely recommend this unique experience!

“It's a GREAT experience sleeping on such splendid family owned Deutch boat. Rob welcomed us in a friendly way, the place the boat is anchored is an old military fort, in a quiet and unique location, 10 minutes walk from Aalsmeer. Don't expect staying in a standard place/hotel, but expect a unique close to nature moment. I definitly recommend it”
“The host picked me up from the bus stop and then explained all the knowledge about the boat and the fort where it is located. The grounds are closed so you feel very safe as a solo traveler. The boat is over 100 years old and has a very charming charm. It has a cozy dining area, kitchen and small bathroom with toilet. It is located in a very quiet spot at the back of the fort, where you have a beautiful view of the nature and the lake. In the fort itself there are toilets and the possibility to shower. Everything made a very neat and tidy impression. I would like to add a big compliment to the really very likeable host who took a lot of time to make my stay as comfortable as possible. I will definitely come back again!”
“The owner of the boat was very friendly and nice guy, he told us about the boat history, this boat definitely was a historical.”
“Amazing, Rob is so great, he brought his friends and his Mum to join it. His friend made a nice dinner which we shared under the beautiful sunset. Can not be more Dutch, I would definitely recommend! And personally I will take this again and again when I am back. ”

Amazing cozy boat with romantic interior
Had a wonderful morning aboard the Nooit Volmaakt. Way too short. Worth repeating!

Staying on this boat is a very unique experience, I can fully recommend. Rob, the owner of the ship is a very friendly guy who gave us tips which places to see nearby. He also told us many interesting details about the beautiful boat. We will definitely visit again!
This boat is full of history and makes for a great place to stay. Rob is a fantastic host - very knowledgable and responsive. Both Rob and his boat have great stories and are willing to share.

A lovely boat!! Great location, very clean and the Rob (the skipper) was very nice and hospitable. Easy to communicate with. And he gave some suggestions, one of which we chose and had an awesome time! (a boat tour to see Amsterdam in the little time we had there)
