The Ship

“De Chateauroux” is a large sailing ship from 1908. Renovated in 1986 this classic Dutch ship now offers 26 beds (ideal for accommodation of larger groups!). 

In the Winter period (November – March) it’s located right in the city centre of Amsterdam at the historic shipyard called “Scheepswerf
Kromhout”, a well known and unique place in Amsterdam. Nearby the things you’re most likely want to experience in Amsterdam: the historic canals, musea, shops, bars, restaurants, concert halls & theaters. But, at the same time at a private, calm and safe location.

In the Summer period (April – October) the ship can be enjoyed as a special place to stay at in combination with a unique sailing experience. During this period the home port of the ship is Monnickendam, a beautiful and monumental Dutch village no more than 20 minutes from the city centre of Amsterdam and in the middle of the beautiful villages and places of interest surrounding Amsterdam.

There are 10 sleeping cabins (3×4-person and 7×2-person), 1 separate toilet, 2 bathrooms (both with a toilet) and a large common room where free WiFi, a TV and stereo are available. Ideal for meals, leisure or other happenings. Finally there is a fully equipped kitchen connected to the common room that offers various catering possibilities. Parking (paid) is available nearby.

For bookings with 14 or more persons the ship is fully yours (NYE being an exception). For bookings under 14 persons the other rooms can still be booked.

Want to checkin early? You can drop off luggage at our office at the Weteringschans 28 (city centre, right opposite of the national museum). Coffee or tea from our espressobar included!

Rent De Chateauroux and enjoy a unique stay in Amsterdam. Welcome aboard!
