Apartment for rent from € 145/day in AntwerpName/Address: Room on a Magnificent Sailing Ship
Originally it is one of three existing baltic traders from the famous Nobigkrug series, which consisted of nearly 400 sailingships. These charactaristic ships, with transom stern and spoon bow, have demonstrated their quality and seaworthiness in shipping for more than 60 years.
The ship is a galleon built in 1932 in Rensburg, former East Germany. In 1997, the ship was taken out of service and purchased by a pensioned German admiral. The admiral had great intentions in transforming the ship into a private sailingship. However, his ideas were by far too optimistically estimated, and as a result he had to sell the ship again in 2001.
In december 2001, the ship was towed from Hamburg to Kampen. Subsequently, they started an immense renovation project by transforming the ship into its present, wonderful accommodation. The "Hartstocht" was rebuilt into a luxurious sailing hotelship and the renovation was finished in 2003.
Now in 2012, Ronny & Damienne are the proud owners.
Home port will be Antwerp – Belgium.
Authentic & comfortable
The cozy sitting area is a pleasant place to be, when the ship is moored in the evening and you want to stay on board or returning from the shore leave.
The deckhouse is a separate room for guests with four tables and chairs. Weather permitting, this furniture can be moved to the middle deck to create a cozy terrace. The space above the middle deck can be covered with a tarpaulin. The fully opening double doors of the salon are thus connecting the salon, middle deck and deckhouse to form a very large area. Above the salon is the wheelhouse with ample seating. On the upper deck is extensive seating to enjoy the wide view high above the water.
On board are twelve luxurious cabins located, equipped with two full-fledged single beds. All cabins have private shower & toilet, central heating and air ventilation.
Your cabin will be cleaned daily and you will get clean towels. Especially for bride & groom the "Marjorie" has a bridal suite with jacuzzi. In short: all the amenities you could wish.
