The Zwaantje (“little Swan”) is a fully converted passenger barge under Dutch flag and management. The boat has been completely remodeled and is owned and operated by experienced captains Martijn van Tatenhove and Marjorie Kersten. It is 131 ft/40 m long and can accommodate 24 passengers.
On the main deck is a cozy, air conditioned salon with large, panoramic windows, a restaurant area, lounge, and small bar.

You can even join the skipper in the wheel house. There is separate storage for the bicycles on the sun deck.
