The Humble Houseboat Gets a Design Makeover

Arno Schuurs and Paulien van Noort of design agency Getaway Projects have already impressed us with their innovative cabin designs, but when they told us they were building a cabin that was actually a boat, we sat up and paid attention. We knew Arno and Paulien had won awards for their boat designs before, but this was something new.

A state-of-the-art aluminum ship (20mx5m), the Marine Cabin has just travelled back to Rotterdam from Bockholmen Marina in Stockholm, where it will be docked and where it is available to rent.

Once moored in the marina again, it’s a great base for exploring the city. If you’re feeling self-indulgent, invite friends over for dinner on the rooftop terrace. 

Inspired by their experience with their terrestrial cabins, designing great interiors in small spaces, Paulien and Arno have created a warm contemporary (almost industrial) space with huge windows that offer panoramic views and allow light to flood in. Interior details include an elegant fishbone oak floor, a large zinc-finished kitchen, and soft leather banquettes. The ship has two bedrooms that sleep 4 to 5 guests, making it a great cabin rental in Rotterdam.

Description

The Marine Cabin has every detail covered. Sustainable features include a heat pump for floor heating and warm water, solar panels for electicity, and a wastewater treatment system.

On the rooftop terrace, there’s a large living area, with built-in ceramic egg for outdoor cooking and bluetooth hifi system — which is perfect for barbecues, drinks and lounging. Inside there’s a large dining table with space for up to 12 guests. 

The ship can be rented for meetings and dinner parties for up to 12 people. It can also be relocated to a preferred spot (prices on request). If you’re looking for a really unique cabin rental in Rotterdam, this would be very hard to beat.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

The large kitchen has Miele appliances (dishwasher, fridge-freezer, oven, induction cooking), and a Nespresso coffee machine. Beds have Emma mattresses and anti-allergic quilts and pillows by Auping. Bath and bed linens, firewood, Nespresso cups, tea, basic household supply and delicious LA: BRUKET soaps are provided.

AROUND

The ship is currently based in De Rotterdamse Admiraliteit marina.

Defined  as much by it’s modern identity as its location close to the North sea and the home of Europe’s largest port, the city lies at the confluence of both legs of the Maas Rivers, with water delineating the layout, the culture, and the way the city hums along. From canals and river banks, to the bridges and lakes, Rotterdam is a contemporary capital that swims with the times while holding onto its seafaring past. 

Although largely wiped out in the war, Rotterdam rose from the ashes with a strength of purpose and innovative spirit, launching an exciting renaissance in urban design and modern innovation and architectural investment.

From the city center, make stops at Meent (for the street market on Tuesdays and Saturdays at Markthal or Industriegebouw), witte de Withstraat (for excellent coffee) or Wilhelminapier.

From there you can walk the Erasmusbridge towards Katendrecht above the river Maas and the old Hotel New York, and the original Chinatown and sailors quarters, where the SS Rotterdam steamship (now a hotel) is moored. Here you can take a watertaxi (a treat!) into the town center with stops at the old harbor town of Havenkwartier or het Park bij de Euromast.

From Havenkwartier you can walk towards het Park where you can find Parkiet (great for breakfast or lunch) and the beutiful Dudok in het Park. Here you also find Euromast (quite nice on a rainy day) and Amazing Oriental, a Chinese ship and supermarket. From the Park or Havenkwartier you can reach Museumpark and Kunsthal exposition park as well as Museum Boymans van Beuningen.

Then onwards to Witte de Withstraat, a historic street full of small restaurants and shops.It’s a big trek, but cut it into pieces is worth it to see the best of the city.

LOCATION

Rotterdam, Netherlands. Nearest Airport: Rotterdam The Hague Airport

BEST TIME TO VISIT: The cabin will be in Rotterdam through winter although it has floor heating and a wood stove, making it suitable for colder weather too.

    Book this boat right now! I miss our time at the Marine Cabin, it is a magical place to stay, it’s brand new, it’s aesthetically wonderful and also very comfortable. We cooked dinner on board, the kitchen is well stocked and wonderful to use. Sunrise and sunset on the top deck is gorgeous! 

     When we stayed on it we were docked about 15 minutes from old town Stockholm. We booked the boat last minute to have a couple of quiet days before going back to the US thinking it was far out of town. But had we known it was so close to Stockholm we would have stayed there for our entire trip.

    We all loved staying on board the marine cabin. The design of the cabin is beautiful. The level of comfort, the spacious bathroom and the exceptionally equipped kitchen mean you forget you are on a boat. It is only when you look up from anywhere in the living space and see the gorgeous water out of the huge windows that you remember where you are. The details were lovely – the fresh flowers, the excellent knives, brilliantly comfy mattresses, the cosy blankets – and made the whole experience a joy. We used the roof all the time. A lovely sheltered space to relax in the sun. The kids loved climbing in and out of the hatches into the cabins. I honestly could have stayed weeks.’
    ’The island Bockholmen is gorgeous. Lovely woodland brimming with wildflowers. Perfect picnic spots (not that you want to leave the boat). We ate in the restaurant twice and loved it. The service and the food were both excellent and it is such an idyllic spot. We used the scenic route to walk to the metro which was a lovely walk of around 15 minutes, again strewn with flowers and interesting little summer cabins along the way. The metro station was clean and the service reliable and we were in and out of town with no difficulties or confusion. Being close to the centre but able to escape back to the water was the ideal combination.’
    ’Linda’s food was EXCEPTIONAL. Delicious fresh produce for breakfasts and lunches and the best meatballs we had on our whole visit. I would highly recommend getting the boat stocked up before you arrive it was such a pleasure to open a fridge to such treats. Next time we will definitely order more.

    I just came home, it was the most breathtaking place I have ever been on. Seriously! It’s just exactly my taste in every way it is built! I loved it so much!

    Absolutely fabulous – very stylish, and feels delightfully off the beaten track despite being only 15 mins from the centre of town.
