About Lena Maria

The Lena Maria is a former freighter, transformed into a modern and attractive boutique hotel ship. Owners Eelke and Carlien will make sure you experience a warm and personal service.

The ship is very versatile. Whether in summer as a holiday address for a bike and barge holiday, in winter as a hotel ship in Amsterdam or in between as “Lena Maria on location”. All our experiences have two things in common: being on the water and hospitality.

History of the ship

In 1956, the Lena Maria was built as a freighter. The ship is constructed using the rare craft of riveting. This means that metal parts are attached to each other using metal pins (rivets). By introducing modern welding techniques, the craft has been supplanted.

In 2006 she was converted into a beautiful ship by the previous owner. He has built several ships in his career and brought all his experience together in the Lena Maria. During the conversion, the ship was shortened by 15 meters. The hold also has been thoroughly renovated. Where once the space for freight was, is now room for 24 guests to spend the night in one of the fourteen cabins. The salon has been built on the former hold, which we completely renovated in 2020. It has become a beautiful and comfortable ship, offering a luxurious and personal atmosphere.
