How nice that you visit our site!

Wikkelboats are tiny houseboats that are multifunctional and sustainably furnished. On a Wikkelboat you can relax and spend the night, but you can also have a great meeting.

Experience how a tiny houseboat, despite or perhaps thanks to the limited space, inspires you to start thinking differently about living and the amount of required items.

Why is it called a Wikkelboat? The top of the boat is wrapped in 24 layers of corrugated cardboard, making the boat not only very light but also well insulated in terms of sound and temperature. Around it is a kind of raincoat and around it is a wooden covering layer.

The underside is made of aluminum and this also includes the air conditioning and water drainage. The boat can sail, but this only happens occasionally so is not available to guests.

In 2021 we are expanding the number of Wikkelboats and are still looking for special places in city ports in the Netherlands and Belgium. Do you know a nice place where we could possibly moor? Contact us and if we succeed you can spend the weekend there for free!

Since May 2020 we have completely renovated and moored a beautiful ship “De Coaster” from 1909 around the corner from the Wikkelboats. If you want to stay in a typical Rotterdam way in the heart of Rotterdam, book a luxury Cabin at De Coaster!

View here the short film about our Wikkelboats made for RTL4 Coffee Time.

Discover Rotterdam in a very special way in the Wikkelboat. The city center is a short walk from all the hotspots and restaurants of Rotterdam. Enjoy the harbor.

On behalf of Oostervant, thank you so much for your hospitality last week! We had a super nice (meeting) day on the Wikkelboat. The setting and the ambiance made it a great meeting. Certainly until next time!
