MArine cabin Stockholm archipelago
Before designing and building cabins we also ventured into shipbuilding. 10 years ago we built our first ship (and home) Qrooz. With this ship we won the Dutch Design Award. It was time to make a perfect combination of the cabins and the ship. We just finished building it…our first marine cabin! In April 2019 we set sail to Stockholm. It’s possible to rent the ship starting 13 May 2019.
The marine cabin has a unique design. A luxurious getaway where you’ll feel at home at once. Huge windows provide panoramic views. The full blown kitchen and huge table long for dinner parties. The light swinging of the ship provides for perfect sleeping. And on top of that a unique rooftop terrace on which you can enjoy a lazy afternoon. The ship has its base in the Bockholmen Marina in Stockholm, a beautiful location with fantastic views of the Stockholm Archipelago and closeby the city centre.

The ship has its base in Bockholmen Marina in Stockholm. A tiny marina on the island Bockholmen that is connected to the mainland via a bridge. The island offers fantastic views of the Stockholm Archipelago. From here you can explore the islands in the Archipelago by boat or take the Subway, Uber or cycle into town. There is a subway station (Bergshamra) that takes you to the city centre in 10 minutes. From the boat to the subway is a 10-15 minute walk. You could also use Uber, that will take you 15 minutes.
In the marina you'll find a floating sauna year round. It's also possible to rent a SUP or a RIB-boat in summer. Next to the marina restaurant Bockholmen serves delicious food in a pretty Swedish villa.You can also stay at home and enjoy your own private ‘chef-on-board’. Linda, our friend and favourite Swedish chef, can provide you with breakfast, snacks, picknick-lunch and dinner during your stay.
The ship will also travel! This summer (June 20 - August 19) the ship will be on the island Möja, one of the furthest (and very beautiful) islands in the Stockholm Archipelago. For us Möja is the secret hideaway you’ve always wished for: sea, lakes, forest, rocky hills. The ferry takes you from the centre of Stockholm to Möja in a just few hours, a beautiful trip through the more than 30.000 islands of the Archipelago.
Food & service
Our friends Linda and Linus will take care of the ship in Stockholm. Linda is our favourite chef, we absolutely love her cooking! Her style is Swedish with a modern twist and everything is homemade. It is possible to book packages along with your stay: daily breakfast, sweet treats, night snacks, picknick lunch, a ready-to-cook dinner upon your arrival or your own private ‘chef-on-board’ where Linda will come onboard and cook for you. It is also possible to rent the ship for meetings or a dinner party for up to 12 people. Linus can offer you a tour of the Archipelago with his watertaxi or arrange for a cruise with the Marine Cabin with a skilled captain. We can also relocate the ship to your preferred spot. More info on the packages and prices you can find HERE. Upon booking your stay you can book the packages you’d prefer or you can contact us for an offer. The packages are also available on Möja. If you have any questions you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +31(0)634843431.
‘A really cool ship for a sociable and luxurious stay on the sea. All very convenient from start to finish with everything from booking to check in, check out and all the details at the ship. Just stay and enjoy the beautiful Swedish archipelago in style. My friends and I had an amazing stay - thanks Paulien, Linus and Linda! (location Moja)’ - Roxie, London (UK)
‘I can't say enough good things about the Marin Cabin. We stayed a week in this luxury cabin with our family and experienced the impressive nature of Sweden. In the morning we woke up with a dip in the sea, made espresso and visited the local bakery by bike. We wandered through the forest, caught our fish in the nearby lake and spotted deers. We've also explored the Stockholm archipelago; an unforgettable experience because of the unspoilt rugged coastlines and picturesque villages with the characteristic red houses. After a day in the great outdoors, it is very pleasant to return to a luxury residence that already feels like home. Wish we stayed here longer! - Marlies, Amsterdam
‘Amazing cabin in a truely lovely and genuine location!’ - Ulrich, Hamburg (Germany)
‘Paulien’s floating apartment looks more like a stylish Amsterdam apartment than a ship! What a unique and fun experience floating in the archipelago in such a stylish residence. Lovely small touches throughout and a kitchen and dining room that just beg for big dinners with friends - the rooftop lounge is perfect for summer nights. I highly recommend this flat and look forward to returning!’ - Daniel, Stockholm (Sweden)
‘Absolutely fabulous - very stylish, and feels delightfully off the beaten track despite being only 15 mins from the centre of town.’ - Griffin, London (UK)
‘I just came home, it was the most breathtaking place I have ever been on. Seriously! It’s just exactly my taste in every way it is built! I loved it so much! - Marco, Stockholm (Sweden)
‘We all loved staying on board the marine cabin. The design of the cabin is beautiful. The level of comfort, the spacious bathroom and the exceptionally equipped kitchen mean you forget you are on a boat. It is only when you look up from anywhere in the living space and see the gorgeous water out of the huge windows that you remember where you are. The details were lovely - the fresh flowers, the excellent knives, brilliantly comfy mattresses, the cosy blankets - and made the whole experience a joy. We used the roof all the time. A lovely sheltered space to relax in the sun. The kids loved climbing in and out of the hatches into the cabins. I honestly could have stayed weeks.’
’The island Bockholmen is gorgeous. Lovely woodland brimming with wildflowers. Perfect picnic spots (not that you want to leave the boat). We ate in the restaurant twice and loved it. The service and the food were both excellent and it is such an idyllic spot. We used the scenic route to walk to the metro which was a lovely walk of around 15 minutes, again strewn with flowers and interesting little summer cabins along the way. The metro station was clean and the service reliable and we were in and out of town with no difficulties or confusion. Being close to the centre but able to escape back to the water was the ideal combination.’
’Linda's food was EXCEPTIONAL. Delicious fresh produce for breakfasts and lunches and the best meatballs we had on our whole visit. I would highly recommend getting the boat stocked up before you arrive it was such a pleasure to open a fridge to such treats. Next time we will definitely order more.’- Danielle, London (UK)
