    All boats have the same essential design of cabin with a double bed and adjoining en-suite shower/wc. Some have large picture windows, but traditionally they have smaller windows. Mosquito nets and common as well.

    Upper Decks

    Some boats have an upperdeck which gives both privacy and a birds eye view. The disadvantage is that you cannot enter the smaller canals.

    The Galley Kitchen

    In the stern of the vessel, you will find the galley which is staffed by one of the crew. He may not be a chef, but in our experience he is usually a master of the local cuisine.

    Shower Rooms

    Shower/WCs are ensuite and each cabin has its own "facilities". They are cosy (ready cramped) but very useable and clean. There is rarely hot water except for sun heated.

    Design

    The essential design of the houseboat is a classic. Interior design tastes can vary from the chic to the bombastic. New boats tend to have more shiny surfaces!
