The Feniks and a word from the captain
Formally a freighter, nowadays a sailing hotel vessel.
Originally, the Feniks was built in 1928 as a cargo barge for the Dutch, German, Belgian and French inland waters. It is a strong vessel with many years of service and is known because of her beautiful form and speed.
In 1992, the Feniks has been converted into a hotel passenger ship for various sailing holidays. Since then, she has undergone several refits to keep the ship up-to-date with all modern facilities.
Aboard you will find a comfortable and well-lit lounge, where you can relax on the sofa or have a good meal. We have an extended library, a varied collection of CDs and DVDs, a television and many magazines to keep you entertained. Of course we have lots of information and maps of the route, the sailing area and the places you visit.
The cabins are clean and well cared. All cabins have an individual bathroom with sink, shower and toilet. We have three cabins with each two standard beds and six cabins with bunk beds. All beds have hotel-standard mattrasses. The cabins are equipped with central heating, 220-volt sockets and of course all essentials for a good sleep. Your personal laundry will be taken care of. If you need anything, just ask and we'll see if we can do it for you. Most of the times we succeed.
There is a sundeck to relax on or you can sit under the canopy, which gives you shelter from the sun or light rain. If the weather allows, we serve the meals outside on the deck.
a word from Marius, the Captain
From consultant to sailor, cook and captain, I welcome you aboard teh Feniks along with its enthousiastic crew. I carefully chose the cooks and tireless sailors chosen according to their professional qualities and their commitment to make your holiday a total succes.
In my life I have spent much time on the water and since 2015 on board the Feniks, enjoying the space, the freedom, the many beautiful places and the moments.
I like to share these feelings with everybody who likes to be in a friendly, relaxing environment. Enjoying the good things of life in the nature of France and Belgium remote from big city life.
