The Details...

The Lilla Marras is a work of art – completely restored and adapted to its new use. With respect for the boat’s inimitable lines, everything has been done to make the lower deck a comfortable place to stay. The aft cabin of the ship serves as your home from home. It is here that you can enjoy your breakfast, which is quietly delivered in the pilothouse first thing in the morning, ready for when you wake.

On deck you’ll find plenty of neat places to sit and enjoy the harbour, the town and the sea. If you like you can hire your own private captain, who will be eager to show you, during a two-hour trip, just how agile this classic lifesaver still is. But, that’s up to you: you can also choose to simply ‘cast off’ all your worries by quietly enjoying this unique place yourself.

Whilst inside the boat, relax on your water lily-shaped bed, or enjoy a dip in the wooden two-person bath in the fore-cabin. You’ll also find two comfortable swivel armchairs, a table and all the technology you need with a DVD play, CD unit, radio and telephone. There are also wind speed and direction meters, so you can keep an eye on the weather onboard. Be reassured there is central heating to keep you toasty, as well as a Quooker so you can make tea and a mini-bar for cold drinks too. And of course, there is a toilet.

The Lilla Marras served as lifeboat from 1955 to 1979 at several places on the British coast. During that period she performed 105 rescue operations and saved 45 lives. A few years ago, she was brought over to the Netherlands by a lifeboat enthusiast, and has been an asset to the Harlingen harbour ever since. You’ll find Harlingen a quaint little sea side port that is full of charm, with beautiful historic buildings, canals and tall ships to see. Take a wander, stop for coffee or supper and enjoy the views. In town you’ll find a lovely mix of merchant’s houses, warehouses and a network of charming little alleys to explore. There are some museums, a lighthouse and plenty of delicious restaurants too, perhaps the perfect town for pottering.
