The Feniks barge


7 cabins / 2 decks

The Feniks was built in 1928 as a freighter on the Dutch, Belgian, and French waters. In 1992 the Feniks was reconstructed to a hotel passenger ship and put in service for sailing vacations. In 2015, Marius purchased the Feniks. He invests continuously to improve the ship and to make your stay on board even more comfortable with the most recent renovation taking place in 2019.

Onboard you will find a comfortable and well-lit saloon, where you can relax on the sofa or have a good meal. You can enjoy the extended library of books and magazines, as well as a varied collection of CDs and DVDs, and several family/party games.

Outside on the deck you will find various seats to take in the best views of the fantastic landscapes. There is a sundeck to relax on or you can sit under the awning which gives you shelter from the sun or light rain. If the weather allows, we serve the meals outside on the deck. A washer and dryer are available for use.
