Three exceptional lives!


First life - A pleasure boat.

The boat was built in 1996 and was christened the Georgia Clipper. It began life roaming the water in Ontario.

Second life - A bike boat.

In 2008, after being purchased by two dedicated cyclists, Ronald Houde and Anne Perreault, the boat left Ontario and settled into Montreal's Old Port. It was renamed the Latitude Amsterdam and was re-launched as a Bike & Boat vacation concept. The concept, imported from Holland, was to provide a home base for cyclists and hikers while they explored the locks, canals and other heritage locations around Quebec.


Third life - Metamorphosis into a reception and lodging space.

In 2012, the boat was purchased by a lover of watersports who comes from three generations of sailors. In 2013, after the boat was entirely renovated, the owner hired Symbole Branding, a Montreal-based branding agency, to create its remarkable visual identity. The Latitude Amsterdam then became the Skal Nuphar, a remarkable boat transformed into an elegant space for corporate and private events.
