Comfort Plus Class Boat for Bike Tours
The beautiful MS Quo Vadis, a refurbished cargo barge, was put into service in April 2006 as a bike and boat vessel.
What a fascinating story! In fact, all the refurbished barges in our bike and boat tour inventory tell a story all their own. The Quo Vadis was originally built in 1939 at the boatyard in Bouwsluis at a length of 50 meters. In the 70's, in the shipyard Voruit in Zaandamit, it was extended to 55 meters and continued its life as a cargo ship, only to be shortened again in 2005, and converted into a passenger vessel.
Now, years later, the Quo Vadis, navigates the waterways of Holland, Belgium, and Germany, writing a new history as a bike and boat vessel.
It is equipped with 12 spacious cabins, each with a private bath, two single beds that can be pushed together, and air conditioning with fixed windows. Each cabin has a safe for valuables and a hairdryer. The ship offers a gorgeous open salon with corner seats, a restaurant, a small bar, and a sundeck with umbrellas. With a guitar and piano right on board, guests are invited to play and sing.
Don’t forget that on board the Quo Vadis, mostly organic food is offered.
