About the Koh-ï-Noor

The impressive coast cruiser Koh-I-Noor is a ship of rich history.

It was in 1904 in Hamburg, that the cruiser first touched water. Carrying the name Petrus, she transported cargo to Scandinavia, the Baltic States and England until 1947.
Yet, owner and skipper Frans Kochx had a very different plan for his authentic schooner.
After an overhaul and a career as a motorised cargo vessel, she finally moored in Harlingen to serve as one of the most luxurious charter ships sailing for the fleet of Rederij Vooruit.

A true gem of the Wadden Sea, the Koh-I-Noor will take you on the sailing trip of your dreams.

Extra information about the Koh-ï-Noor

Port Harlingen The majority of our sailing ships set out from our home port Harlingen. Located right near the beautiful Wadden Sea, port Harlingen is the best place to start your sailing trip. With the Afsluitdijk closeby, Lake IJssel and the Frisian Lakes are easily reached as well. Step aboard our traditional ships and explore the Netherlands! Port Harlingen is the most important harbour of the province of Friesland.
