Come aboard!

Have you ever wondered what it is like to live and sleep aboard a ship? As a guest of Boat Boutique in Zwolle you will experience just that. This B&B houseboat is situated in the canal in Zwolle. The ship is charmingly decorated with a personal touch, it boasts modern and luxury facilities, and you will have the ship all to yourself, so privacy is guaranteed.

You will enjoy the stunning water views while not having to miss out on any of the city’s dynamics as the ship is in the heart of Zwolles city centre. All the city’s amenities are withing walking distance. An ideal location for exploring the city during a weekend or midweek break! But of course, you are not obliged to do anything on Boat Boutique, except let your worries drift away...

Immerse yourself

Sleeping on a houseboat is sleeping on the water. Therefore, an overnight stay on this barge is a unique experience. The ship ‘Dewiati’ was built in 1910 and after a thorough revision has been modernised to a luxury Bed & Breakfast for two people. Having preserved all authentic elements of the ship, Boat Boutique is a one-of-a-kind B&B. The luscious bed, the high-quality bath towels and linen, and the fully kitted kitchen bring you comfort. The stylish interior will make the ship embrace you; allow yourself to be rocked to sleep… In the sheltered cockpit you can enjoy the sunshine, even in winter. Feel free to sleep in as long as you like because we will not disturb your peace with breakfast. On the corner of the quay you will find a shop for bread, cheese and eggs and of course, you could stroll into town for breakfast.

Driving force

For many years we ourselves lived on the ‘Dewiati’. In 2020 we decided to transform the barge to Boat Boutique, a stylish and extraordinary location to stay for anyone wanting to visit Hanseatic City Zwolle. With over 25 years of experience in both hospitality and tourism we are happy to point you in the direction of all this city has to offer. Renting a bicycle or a boat, a guided tour, lovely restaurants; please navigate on our experience. Prefer to go exploring by yourself? Let us know and we will not disturb you so you can immerse yourself in comfort and quiet.

Sailing in

Check in on Boat Boutique between 2 and 6 pm. You will be welcomed onboard the boat by us and be handed the key. As we do not live on the boat and we do not want to keep you waiting, we would like to know what time you expect to arrive. Please let us know your expected arrival time the day before and confirm this by WhatsApp message on the day. And while you are messaging us anyway… let us know if you would prefer an elaborate reception, just a brief one or only an address to pick up the key?
