Sustainable materials

Our Wikkelboats are made of several layers of recycled corrugated cardboard. This material is lightweight, insulates sound and heat well, is strong and completely renewable. As a result, our boats have a minimal carbon footprint and contribute to a circular economy while allowing you to enjoy an undisturbed stay.


The roof of our Wrap boats is full of solar panels. With this we generate most of the power we need sustainably, any excess power is supplied by Dutch wind power. In doing so, we help reduce CO2 emissions and preserve the natural environment!

Water Conservation

Water is a precious commodity, which is why we want to use it as sparingly as possible! Our Wikkelboats are equipped with water-saving faucets, shower heads & toilets.

Waste Management

We separate our waste carefully and encourage our guests to do the same. This way, the waste can be recycled and we reduce our waste streams. In addition, our wrap boats are equipped with compost bins, in which organic waste can be processed into compost. The waste is further processed at a nearby sheltered workshop.

Circular products

We believe it is important to use (local) products & services that contribute to the local economy, environment & nature. For example, consider our


or even the

toilet rolls

, just to name a few examples

Sustainable heating

Wikkelboat uses air-to-air and for the Jacuzzis an air-water heat pump as a highly sustainable heating system. This system allows rapid heating and cooling in an energy-efficient manner (606 70% reduction).

Discover the modular construction & smart design of our floating tiny houses

At Wikkelboat, we believe that sustainability does not have to come at the expense of comfort and style. Our tiny houses are the perfect example of how
smart, strategic design
modular construction
can lead to a comfortable, sustainable lifestyle.

For example, each Wikkelboat is carefully designed to make the most of the space; the floats of our Wikkelboats are not only a solid base for the cottage, but also serve as practical storage basements; the beds are disguised as cabinets in the wall, the windows in turn serve as television screens for the projector; the bedroom can be completely transformed into a meeting room during the day, and even the terrace can transform into a Jacuzzi.

Stop by and see for yourself how Wikkelboat is great at being small!
