About the Manna

The graceful clipper Manna left the wharf of Ouderkerk aan de IJssel in the year 1897.

After having transported cargo over inland waterways until the 60’s, a complete rebuild turned her into a charter ship later on in 1992.
The owner decided to keep the unique horizontal helm, which she still proudly displays today.

Being one of the oldest ships of our fleet, she has been a popular choice amongst our guests ever since the joined Rederij Vooruit.
Stepping aboard the Manna means going on an adventure you will never forget!
