The sailing ship used on the IJsselmeer and the Frisian Sea is a traditional and comfortable sailing boat. Many of these ships served as cargo ships at the beginning of the last century and were subsequently completely refurbished and fitted with all the modern conveniences.
The ship has comfortable cabins for 2 to 4 persons.
In addition, there is a pleasant day lounge and a fully equipped galley. All the ships have hot and cold running water, toilets and showers on board. On deck there is plenty of room to take an active part in sailing the ship or to simply relax and enjoy the sailing adventure.

Klaus from Dortmund, Germany who participated in our trip says:
The Trip was very nice. The ship and Crew were fantastic. The tours were very interesting, beautiful and good for beginners and professionals. We had enough time for all the things we want to do. Lex and Mark were very good tour leaders. Sometimes Lex was very fast for the slow people, but this was not a problem because Mark was a very nice companion for the people at the end of the group. And a very good cocktail mixer ;o) Every day was one of the best day in my life and the worst thing was to leave the group and the ship. Thank you all for these wonderful and happiest days. I will be back next year :o) Klaus
