GeWoonboot – Sustainable houseboat venue for meetings and training courses
The geWoonboot was built in 2007 by the DeltaWonen housing corporation, as a prototype of a self-sufficient floating home. In the Netherlands, as a water-rich country and with a view to climate change, the houseboat is a beautiful example of the possibilities in sustainable living at the time it was built. Situated on the creative NDSM wharf, it is an inspiring meeting place for all kinds of organisations and companies. In addition, Jan and Joan, the owners, are happy to tell visitors about the unique and sustainable features of the boat, inspiring them with and informing them about the possibilities of sustainable living.
geWoonboot gives tours at weekends and in the evenings showing you the sustainable systems on the geWoonboot (duration 1 hour). After the tour, you can dine on board (evening) or eat lunch (weekend).
The excursion ends with a guided tour around the inspiring NDSM Wharf, in which you will learn about the history of the former shipyard and its development into Europe’s largest creative incubator (duration 1 hour).
