The First Officer's cabin on board the historic 19th C sailing ship De Walvisch. Bespoke and hand-built with reclaimed solid teak and marine antiques. Compact and luxurious, a cabin with screen and media player, own sink, wardrobe and drinks cabinet. Although a double bed, this room is best suited for a single person. We may however occasionally consider a couple staying. All stays on board ship include a cooked English breakfast in the mornings, served in the ship's galley from Navy silver.

Prostor

The ship De Walvisch is a fully functioning historic Dutch sailing klipper, built in 1896. It is owed by the artists Zatorski + Zatorski, who live on board with their children, and who have lovingly and painstakingly restored the vessel over the past 5 years, using reclaimed hardwoods and marine antiques. There are some restorations ongoing.
De Walvisch is an ex-cargo ship, that used to carry eels from Holland to London - restored to her original lines and with all her round wood replaced, she is one of the finest examples of a 19th C sailing Klipper in the UK.
The First Officer's bedroom is a bespoke-built double cabin, accessed off the corridor leading to the bow bedroom. Though compact (please be aware - this is a small ship's cabin), there is ample room under the raised bed for storing luggage. It has its own submarine sink with hot and cold water and is the only cabin to have its own media centre, with films on hard drive for you to enjoy during your stay. A bluetooth speaker also means you can listen to music from your own device.
There is central heating throughout the ship, as well as a wood burning stove in the main hold to heat the vessel, it is not cold in winter!
There are two cabins available to book as guests on board, the Captain's Bow bedroom and the First Officer's Cabin.

Dostupno gostima

Your entry and exit to the vessel will be from the central starboard hatch, which allows access to the hallway area, bathroom and separate toilet, and First Officer's cabin.
The bathroom has a full-size bath and shower with ample hot water.
At breakfast you will be invited into the roef (deckhouse) of the ship, which is the galley, accessed from the back deck. You can also sit outside on the stern deck at this time.
We are currently in a build-period for the ship, with renovations on a new cabin, so the main hold is being used as a workshop and will therefore not be accessible. However, it may be possible to arrange evening access to the main hold for a private gathering, depending on when you are staying - this would need to be discussed beforehand with the hosts.
During your stay we will keep any noise associated with the renovations to a minimum!

Interakcija s gostima

Zatorski + Zatorski, Thomas and Angel, will be your hosts - you will be warmly welcomed upon your arrival and they will be on board throughout your stay for any questions, advice or assistance. As long-time London residents, Thomas & Angel have a wealth of local knowledge, particularly of the art and culture the city has to offer and they are always happy to advise those new to the city.
Breakfast on board is served from Navy silver and with antique royal crockery. All produce is free-range. You will be asked about your food preferences prior to or on arrival.

Ostale napomene

De Walvisch is afloat on the River Thames - please be advised that this is a busy tidal river, and the ship will rock accordingly. At high tide, and at peak river traffic times this can be more noticeable, evening times less so, but if you are prone to sea-sickness, this is probably not the place for you.

Just east of Tower Bridge, the ship is walking distance to many wonderful sites in central London. It’s a quick and lovely walk to the Tower underground station. The neighborhood, Wapping, is full of maritime history and charm (think 500+-year-old pubs); it’s safe and easy to navigate. The ship is marvelous - the owners are artists and have curated the ship with curiosities that will surprise and delight you. My room was cozy and charming —\0 rocked to sleep by the Thames, I’ve never slept so well in my life. Breakfast was hearty and fresh served on china with antique silver...but the best were the conversations I had each morning with Angel about art and life. I also received a lot of great tips. My only regret was not staying longer. Higly recommended!
