Freedom on the WATER
A unique experience
Our Camper-boat berthed in Breukelen (close to Utrecht and Amsterdam) by Wiegmans yacht harbour awaits you. Park your car next to the boat, unload your luggage and after a short explanation of how the boat works you can set off on your own adventure on the water. Onboard the boat there are all the main comforts; see below for an impression of the ambiance on the boat and the surrounding area.
Together with the boat comes your own private island. Here you can relax in the peace and quiet of this beautiful area in the middle of nature. You can also rent a small boat which allows you to manoever easily whilst exploring the area. This is also a paradise for fishers. There are abundant amounts of large Carp and Pike in the waters!
I live with my family in the area on a houseboat. We use the Camper-boat ourselves but but are pleased that we can share the experience with others.

Living and sleeping
The light living area has two comfortable bench sofa’s which can quickly be turned into a large double bed. Under and above the bed there is ample room for all your belongings in large cupboards. The dining table is neatly integrated into the wall to save space.
Kitchen shower and toilet
On the left behind the living quarter is a small but adequate kitchen with a 60-liter refrigerator with a small frezer, a two burner hob and a sink with running water. Opposite the kitchen is a bathroom with rain shower, chemical toilet and a small wash basin with a mirror.
Terraces and roof-top bedroom
On the front deck is a large terrace where the steering column is situated. During bad weather or cool nights this can be covered on all sides. At the rear of the boat is a small terrace with two large chests containing extra material for the boat that can be locked. From here a ladder leads up to the top deck which has a large terrace and the fold-out second bedroom including a comfortable mattress that also offers direct access into the boat. This offers great sleeping quarters for children or one or two adults.
