Such a beautiful boat, inside the boat is lovely and very comfortable. We were a party of 10 and the boat had everything we needed.

Thank Kellywilkins

Finding a home for a very large group to stay together for New Year's Eve was not an easy task! Thankfully for us we found Grietje's ship, the Boreas, located in the north east of Amsterdam city centre (during the winter months). HOST Grietje explained...More

About the neighbourhood
The Boreas is located on a private jetty on the authentic old shipyard the NDSM-wharf in Amsterdam North. You are only 9 minutes away from central Amsterdam by ferry (it’s free).

The NDSM area emerged the last five years as one of the hippest and most creative neighborhoods in Amsterdam. In the summertime there are festivals organTwo minutes walk from the boat you will find Café Noorderlicht, an organic restaurant that already had sustainability and bio-products before it became a trend. In the evenings they often have bands. Tip: go when night falls a local beer on the terrace overlooking the water and the Amsterdam skyline. Slightly further you will find Pllek, a restaurant built from shipping containers, with great food and good music.
Getting around
The location is awesome - you can take the ferry for free wich leads you directly into the centre. Still there are very cool bars and restaurants right next to the boat.
Car not needed
How to get there
If you are arriving by plane:
The cheapest and also a comfortable way to go to the centre of Amsterdam from Schiphol airport is to take the train. It will take you in 15 minutes to the central station.

When you arrive at the Central Station, the only thing you will have to do is cross the big Y-canal (the water). From the Central Station you take the ferry to the NDSM-werf, it takes around 15 minutes across the water. At the NDSM wharf it is a 3 minute walk to the ship. I our the skipper Henk will be waiting for you to welcome you and explain some things about the boat. (you don’t need to bring towels, sheets, pillows and blankets, we provide them!)
