Vrouwe Johanna

overnight stay on board sailing ship, outskirts of Amsterdam

Quiet B&B Amsterdam.

Since 2007, the Vrouwe Johanna has a permanent berth in Durgerdam, Rural North Amsterdam. The ship is ideal for a short or extended stay quite close to Amsterdam City Centre, yet in rural and quiet surroundings.

The ship can also be moored in Amsterdam itself, opposite the Central Station, or elsewhere.

The robust dimensions of this barge now provide much comfort for 12 guests below deck, but used to secure safe cargo transport across the North Sea and Baltic Sea to Scandinavia.

The B&B offers a large cozy living room, open kitchen with plenty of amenities, kitchen utensils included, microwave, oven, fridge / freezer, dishwasher, washer and dryer. There is a bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. There are three cabins; one with 3 double beds, one with 2 double beds and one with 2 bunk beds.

When the weather is fine, you can sit on the deck with a wonderful view and accompanying birdsong. For a small extra fee you can use bicycles and / or canoes. There is plenty of information available about the area, cycling and walking routes.

The B&B (Boat and Bed) is located on the popular Zuiderzeeroute and is easily accessible by bike and on foot. Public transport takes you to a 10 minute walk to the ship (stop Lier Gouw, line 37). Line 30 stops right in front of the ship (stop Durgerdammerdijk 4) on weekdays in the winter months and in summer throughout the week. If you bring a car, you can park it on the shoulder. 

Amsterdam's city center, Central Station is reached in about 15 minutes by car / taxi, public transport or by bicycle. What else could you wish for? Overnight stay on a historic ship in a rural area and yet the bustling city center of Amsterdam within reach.

However, this is also still a sailing ship and in the summer season she is available for sailtrips, specializing in training on board; the crew is proficient in personal development, training, coaching and growth. This is achieved through a combination of physical exertion (i.e. during sailing), interspersed with a presentation, seminar or workshop.
A sailtrip comes in many enjoyable forms. The Vrouwe Johanna (Lady Johanna) offers several day trips, weekends and sailing holidays, events and racing. Whatever you do, there is a comfortable, cozy and spacious accommodation where you can celebrate!
