Our Abuela - a Linssen Grand Sturdy® 40.9 AC is generous and comfortable at the same time - the perfect motor yacht for your family vacation. LIVING "IN STYLE" Linssen stands for outstanding quality and reliability. The perfect layout and thoughtful details bring a vacation feeling right from the start. The inviting salon with seating, dinette, and pantry has everything you need to indulge and relax with your family. But you'll spend most of your time on the aft deck with its cozy lounge, enjoying the proximity to the water. Three sleeping cabins, two bathrooms with shower and toilet, spacious wardrobes, and ample storage space provide enough room for belongings and privacy. AMENITIES "EVERYTHING YOU NEED" Completely equipped with dishes, cooking pots, cutlery, glasses, coffee machine, hand, shower, and kitchen towels, freshly made beds, and more. Since we also use our Abuela ourselves, you will discover many onboard details that make life a little more comfortable than on typical charter yachts. THE NAVIGATION AREA Our "van der Laan" harbor in Maasbracht is an excellent starting point for various routes for your vacation, depending on the time available and your personal preferences. You can find peace and relaxation in the extensive nature reserve, where wild Konik horses and cattle graze. Maastricht offers high-quality gastronomy and culture to the south along the Zuid Willemsvaart, where you can dock in the historic city harbor. Liège, long a commercial and cultural center in the French-speaking part of Belgium, invites you to indulge in delicious waffles, and along the meandering Maas River, interesting sights await discovery in Namur, Dinant, and northern France. On the Willemsvaart, you can explore magnificent historic places like Rekem, chosen as Flanders' most beautiful village in 2010, and the old garrison town of Leopoldsburg. The designer outlets in Maasmechelen offer great shopping opportunities. From the small transit harbors, you can connect to the famous cycling network. Relax with one of the countless Belgian beer varieties at one of the many waterside terrace cafes. Our base is located in the Maas Lakes area, which, with 3000 hectares of water, represents the largest connected water sports area in BENELUX. Heading north, you can reach Zeeland or Friesland in two to three days. The episcopal city of Roermond, with its designer outlet and numerous boutiques, cafes, and restaurants, as well as the Mediterranean ambiance of Marina Oolderhuuske, are highlights on the route. Further towards Venlo, you can explore places like Leukermeer and Mooker Plassen, as well as continue to Willemstad, Breda, Heusen, or even further to Friesland. And to the south, in the Belgian provinces of Limburg, Liège, Antwerp, Flemish and Walloon Brabant, cities like Antwerp, Mechelen, Leuven, Brussels, and Charleroi on the Sambre River await you with a diverse kaleidoscope of cultural and culinary highlights. Whether you choose one of our suggested routes or just want to get information - we wish you a lot of fun and a dream vacation on our Abuela. Wi-Fi, gas, instruction, and parking space included. The boat will be delivered to you fully fueled, and you should return it fully fueled as well. Tullemanns gas station in Maasbracht is not only "probably the cheapest gas station in the Netherlands" but also just around the corner. Linssen Yachts are very fuel-efficient. Typically, it's enough to run it at 1500 RPM. Our Abuela consumes between 3.5 and 4 liters of diesel per hour. You can check the current consumption at any time using the onboard instruments.

We loved our time on Abuela and can recommend anyone to take her out for a spin - you'll have a great time! Oliver (and his wife!) are amazing owners and are doing everything in their power to make you enjoy your stay, even during your period on the boat by answering any questions you may have. The proposed trips in Oliver's overview are very detailed, well worth following up and for us a great help in determining where to go and what to do. The boat is in great shape for it's age - it is obvious this is way more then 'just' a charter for the owners. It is clear from anything that they *love* their boat and treat it as such.
