The ship was completely renovated in 2013. The superstructure was raised; therefor the red cedar ceilings are extra high.

The rich history of this sturdy, extra solidly built ship starts in 1926 when it came from the yard as a motorless barge of the Kempenaar type under the name Geertruida.
Initially, it transported freight in the Belgian-Dutch border area. In 1939 she was requisitioned by the Dutch government, after which she served as a hospital ship in Rotterdam during the Second World War. It came to Amsterdam in the 1980s and was given a residential destination.
The beautiful berth on the Amstel is convenient for shops and restaurants in the popular De Pijp district and easily accessible from the high way.
