Welcome aboard the MV ZWAANTJE!
The Zwaantje, which means "Little Swaan", is a unique and cozy Dutch passenger barge. Since September 2014, the „Zwaantje“ has new owners and operators: Martijn van Tatenhove and Marjorie Kersten, who are experienced as operators of a passenger barge for more than thirteen years. Martijn is your experienced captain on board; he grew up in a family in the hotel and restaurant business and is also a licensed chef. Marjorie graduated in Tourism at the Breda High School and has been working in public relations. The sympathetic and very motivated couple have slightly restyled the interior of the “Zwaantje” in winter 2014-2015 and have created a warm and cozy atmosphere.
On the main deck you will find the nice and cozy salon with air conditioning and large panoramic windows, a restaurant area, lounge corner and a small bar. Depending on the quality of the network connection (mobile internet, limited data amount) the salon offers free Wi-Fi. The barge has a very spacious sun deck (90m²) with chairs and tables and a beautiful view, where you can relax or join the skipper in the wheel house.
Full board: breakfast, picnic lunch during bike tours, 3-course-dinner, coffee and tea
On lower deck the barge has 13 sleeping cabins: 10 twin cabins with two single beds each and two cabins with a double (French) bed and an additional 3rd bed as Pullman bed. The tour leader will be accommodated in a single cabin. All cabins have a small en-suite bathroom with toilet, shower and wash basin, a fixed window (both double cabins have larger windows that also open) and individual air conditioning.
The interior of the ship is a non-smoking area: smoking is only allowed on the (outside) sun deck.
