The lovely Merlijn is a diva, for sure. What makes her special? Is it the luxurious cabins with most comfortable beds you have ever slept in? Is it the lovely dining area with the large windows and skylight that let the air, light, and sun pour in? Or perhaps it is the sun deck, where you can relax with newfound friends, sharing good wine and good conversation. We think you will find it is the entire divine package!

The beautiful Quo Vadis is a Deluxe barge. It is known for its food, both locally sourced and organically grown, prepared by an outstanding chef. The owner of the boat is also your captain and delights in making his home, your home.

The Iris offers an interior that is fresh, tasteful and comfortable. With a capacity for 24 passengers, it provides the perfect smaller setting to make new friends and discover the joy of biking and boating.
