Skal means shell in Swedish, and we like to think of your stay as a pearl nestled in the shell of our oyster!

The Skal Nuphar is an amazing boat designed with bright and elegant colors. Our color palette takes its inspiration from the Nuphar, a hardy and colourful aquatic plant with its large and elegant floating leaves. Just like the Nuphar which thrives in both sun and shade in deep and calm water, our boat is sure to please all season long.

In winter, the Skal Nuphar is the perfect location surrounded by the beautiful marina covered in snow and completely quiet and private, yet only steps away from vibrant and historical Old Montreal.

In summer, the Skal Nuphar's terrace is the ideal location to enjoy the beautiful weather and stunning views. The top deck is a modern oasis with large bean bags, adirondack chairs, a BBQ and outdoor speakers to offer you and your group the ultimate experience. The large luxury hot tub spa has LED lighting, waterfall feature and speakers with USB hookup for your iPhone. We also supply towels for your perfect roof top experience.

With its nautical charm, the Skal Nuphar offers 4,500 square feet of pure comfort on water. Our lounge room has just been completely renovated and fits 20 guests comfortably with seating, bar stools and cocktail tables. We even have a fireplace to keep you cozy and creates a great ambience. (winter only) There is also a fully equipped bar with huge ice well, sink, fridge, a cuisinart drip coffee machine (we provide ground coffee), a Keurig machine, (a few pods are supplied), tap for a beer keg, ice machine and plenty of barware. There are speakers on the main floor that can easily connect to your personal music library.

Do you love to cook?! Our commercial kitchen has everything you need: microwave, a toaster, a refrigerator, an oven, a dishwasher, stove, pots and pans, Kitchen Aid mixmaster, blender, Cuisinart, plates, glasses, utensils, etc! Don't feel like cooking?! You are steps away from vibrant Old Montreal with amazing gourmet restaurants.

All our state rooms are outside cabins and offer modern decor and sublime comfort. Each bed is made with 400 TC count luxury sheets that are professionally laundered and ironed. Our towels are Hotel Collection, made of a microcotton fabric that offers plush softness and quick-drying comfort. Each room has two single beds, a mirror, reading lamps for each bed, storage space for luggage and closet space with drawers. Each of the 11 cabins has a private fully-functioning bathroom with a sink, toilet, shower, and body wash. There are hair dryers in every room, so you don't have to pack yours. Each room has an iron and ironing board. There is also 1 more powder room accessible to anyone on the boat.
