The Captain
Owner Eugène Reijmers has been sailing charters in the Mediterranean sea for many years on his sailing yacht Elessar. He now continues to offer his hospitality in Captain’s Place, a peaceful oasis in a dynamic city.
Here in Amsterdam, Eugène recreated the experience of sailing in the Mediterranean. And he has succeeded in combining it with the Amsterdam houseboat setting.
