Book a unique overnight stay on a yacht or houseboat

Would you like to experience what it’s like to sleep on the water? To wake up while the sun is shimmering over the water, greeted by the ducks and birds surrounding you? You can do exactly that in one of our boats at our marina in the beautiful green surroundings of Drachten (Friesland, the Netherlands). You can choose to sleep in one of our 2, 4, 6 or 8 person luxury motor yachts, our Campi Houseboat for 2+3 persons or on our Bungalowboat for 4+2 persons. 

*The boats are located at a fixed location on our marina. It’s not possible to sail these boats, but you can use all facilities on board and at the marina. Would you rather go sailing? Then please have a look at our rental boats

Classification of the boats

Each boat has 1 to 4 cabins. Each cabin has two single beds, a bunk bed, multiple beds or a double bed. Next to that, you can find one or more shower or toilet areas in the yacht, a kitchen, a spacious lounge and a back deck with garden furniture or fixed seating.

The kitchen has a stove (electric or gas), a fridge, coffee maker, tableware and cookware. Some boats are equipped with a microwave or oven. At the marina there is a shared sanitary room with showers and toilets. For a small fee, you can also use a washing machine and dryer.

The environment

The green, water-rich environment in which the marina is located is the perfect location for walking, cycling, canoeing and of course sailing. You can therefore rent bicycles, motor yachts, sloops, canoes and SUP boards at the marina. 

Visit for example the Frisian capital Leeuwarden, enjoy a wonderful day on the Frisian waters with a sloop or motor yacht or discover the city center of Drachten, which is within cycling distance of the marina. Here, you will find enough shops for a fun shopping experience, but you can also visit the De Lawei theater, a cinema, Museum Dr8888 and various eateries. 

Optional: breakfast service

You can get a European breakfast (sandwiches, coffee, egg, etc.) served in the Captains Lounge for € 10 per person per day. Would you like us to arrange this? Please indicate this when booking.
