Mare Marieke

About the Mare Marieke

The klipper Mare Marieke was built in 1880 by Rijker in Rotterdam. She is the oldest of the fleet of Rederij Vooruit. The ship was built for sailing the Rijn (river) with load (also against the current). This is why the Mare Marieke has a fast hull which today is in its favor while sailing competitions.

The original name of the Mare Marieke is “Adriane Dirkje” (1921) and later “Leny” (1955). After a major renovation, the Mare Marieke is since 1996 a part of the Rederij Vooruit fleet and used as a sailing passenger ship on the Waddensea and the IJsselmeer. The home port is Harlingen.

Skipper Axe has been sailing the Mare Marieke since this moment. He knows the ship very well and also the Waddensea. He likes to share this knowledge with you.

Whether you want to go sailing for a day, weekend or week, with the Mare Marieke this is a guaranteed success. Check out all packages and events.
