We are happy to take you on board for unforgettable sailing trips, such as a day trip, weekend sailing, midweek sailing or week sailing.

Brown fleet

Amongst the brown fleet, there is still intensive sailing with traditional ships.
The brown fleet is the designation for professional charter shipping with traditional sailing ships and motor ships in the Netherlands, which were formerly known as cargo ships. Traditional ships are often affiliated with a shipping company to serve in pleasure boating or to live as a houseboat.
Today, many owners have extensively renovated their ship and equipped the interior with living space, rooms and a kitchen. The ships are also equipped with toilets and showers, which means that the use of sanitary facilities does not require mooring.
During our day trip, 14 guests board our smallest ships. The largest ships have room for no less than 60 people.
If you book a multi-day trip, you will spend the night on board! We offer sleeping accommodation to groups of 12 to 37 people.
