“Very nice stayed on this special houseboat! Location, amenities and hospitality are all top! ”
Wikkelboats are tiny houseboats that are multifunctional and sustainable. On a Wikkelboat you can relax, spend the night but also be inspiring to meet.
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 noise and temperature. Around it is a kind of raincoat and around it is a wooden covering. The underside is made of aluminum and the air conditioning and water drainage are also incorporated into this. The boat can sail, but this is not possible for guests.
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!
