About the Iselmar

The monumental clipper Iselmar was built in the year 1902.

She served as a sailing cargo vessel until 1935, after which she was fitted with a motor and went on to transport cargo until 1990.
A final remodelling saw her transformed into the modern charter ship that sails the Wadden Sea and Lake IJssel today.
