About the Anna Catharina

The beautiful clipper barge Anna Catharina first touched water at a shipyard in the village of Zwartsluis.
Built as a one-masted transporter of peat in 1914, she gained two masts in 1981 and got turned into a charter ship.

Little draft makes the Anna Catharina the ideal ship to go and discover places where ships with deeper draft can not go.
Canals for example are easy terrain for this boat and will open a whole new world for sailing fanatics.

Skipper Gerard Hulst literally knows everything about the Eastern Wad and will happily tell you all about the waters surrounding Groningen.
With Gerard as your guide and host, your trip without a doubt will be one to remember!

Port Zoutkamp While most of our ships set out from home port Harlingen, boarding your ship in port Zoutkamp is also an option. Located in the province of Groningen, Zoutkamp offers numerous possibilities for great sailing trips on the Wadden Sea and the German Wads. Zoutkamp often serves as a starting point for cruises to the Wadden Islands Ameland and Schiermonnikoog, since these islands can only be visited during overnight sailing trips when sailing from Harlingen. But mostly, our guests favour port Zoutkamp for the beautiful nature reserve and protected area Lauwers Lake. The diverse wildlife, plants and landscape will captivate you and definitely add to a memorable holiday. The village of Zoutkamp holds a rich history.
