The vetus range was designed by a Dutch designer, Pieter Beeldsnijder. He created a revolutionary design concept by turning around the classic boat shape of a flat front and a high stern. The result is a motor cruiser for inland waters, inspired by a large space above and below deck.

WasserReich Havel-Oder

Between the Oder and the Ruppin Country and north of Berlin the Barnim lies with the water kingdom Havel-Oder. 

If you travel here, you will discover a landscape with clues of the last ice age. The rolling hills of mixed and pine forests cover 70,000 hectares. The landscape of parks and lakes areas are a playground for cyclists, walkers and water sports enthusiasts - all this just 50 kilometers outside the city of Berlin. Culture enthusiasts will love the old brick buildings, striking churches, monasteries and castles. And along the channel admire the impressive industrial monuments marking the exciting history of the area.

Mosel and the Rhine-Marne Canal

The 290 km long Rhine-Marne Canal connects the Rhine valley basin of Paris. The channel runs from the Rhine at Strasbourg to Vitry-le-François behind Toul - briefly interrupted by the canalized Moselle between Toul and Frouard. In Frouard the Mosel (Moselle) from the Rhine-Marne Canal in north branches. It rises in the Vosges Mountains and flows 544 kilometers to the Deutsches Eck in Koblenz in the Rhine.


The scenic beauty of the Great Masurian Lakes is legendary. The glacial moraine consists of nearly 3,000 lakes, many of about one hectare. 25 of the most beautiful lakes are connected by picturesque canals and idyllic rivers. The smaller lakes are called in Polish, "flowery" and "sky eyes" because the clouds are reflected in the emerald green and ultramarine blue water. The land itself is wavy but rather flat, the highest mountains rise just over 300 meters. On land, Mazury offers quiet cobbled streets, ancient avenues, storks, eagles, cranes and luminous fields of rape. It's a beautiful area.

Families on a budget

The non-skid deck and stable railings are just a couple of the safety features on this boat. There is a handrail which goes completely round the boat and a further handrail just halfway up. The bow works well for families because it has an extra-spacious balcony with built-in benches.  Many of the cabins have room for mum, dad and 1 child. Like many families if you have small children who wander in the night it is good to have room in your cabin.  

This boat is not only family friendly, but also for the cost conscious.



Anglers love houseboat vacations; the luxury of being able to fish and sleep comfortably in the same spot with your loved ones is an idyllic scenario. The best place to fish is from the spacious sun deck. If you are an angler we can provide an additional cooler and a smoker on board so you can keep your catch fresh or preservase as you travel. 

Friends and groups

This modern, fun houseboat is very well suited for groups who want to holiday together. The spacious layout offers space and comfort both above and below deck. The bow has an extra-spacious balcony with built-in benches. Of course, table and chairs can be placed on the aft deck as an additional area. At the very far end of the Vetus is the swim platform. Many an hour will be spent sat on the swim platform letting your legs splash in the water with a book in hand.
