Hotel Ship accommodations

Ever thought about a floatel, also known as a hotel ship? is an intermediary between ship owners and companies looking to charter or buy ships.

Refugee accommodation

The need for refugee housing is still high in the Netherlands. We have the possibilities to offer river cruise ships as accommodation. Since the start of 2022, it has become apparent that this type of ship lends itself to receiving refugees very well. Partly due to the fact that we can act quickly and the mobility of the ships fits well with the temporary nature of this refugee crisis. The shipping companies that we work with, still offer possibilities to use ships as housing capacities for refugees. The ships we mediate can be found in various ports in the Netherlands. The following ships currently serve as refugee accommodation in the following cities which have been mediated by us:

    • Arnhem – 4 ships
    • Zwijndrecht – 1 ship
    • Groningen – 1 ship
    • Harlingen – 1 ship
    • Lage Zwaluwa – 1 ship
    • Zaandam – 3 ships
    • Druten – 1 ship
    • Zwolle – 1 ship
    • Meppel – 1 ship
