About the Lauwerszee

The traditional clipper Lauwerszee left the wharf of Boot ten Vrijenban in 1915.

Skippers Aart and Anna became the owners of the Lauwerszee in 2012 and proudly sail this elegant lady over the Wadden Sea and Lake IJssel since.

The ship features excellent sailing qualities and of course the crew encourages you to lend a hand with sailing.
A beauty to see, she effortlessly combines her authentic character with today’s modern conveniences.
