About the Maxima

Skipper Olav Stig takes you on an adventure on board of sailing ship Maxima. Let yourself go at the Maxima by the forces of nature. For both beginnng and experienced sailors there is enough work to do on the front and rear. There is also a place to read a book or simply enjoy and peering over the horizon. All this in the salty air.

The long wooden tables in the well-maintained day room offer plenty of space. The chic interior is clean and the ship has a nice kitchen. In the seven two person- and one four-person cabins flows hot and cold water above the sinks.  The ship has two showers and two toilets.

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

The Maxima is during the winter located in Amsterdam. Boattrips from Amsterdam are possible in this period and the ship can be used as a hotel ship.


Through years of experience, the skipper knows the Waddensea with its banks and mystical movements like no other.

Olav likes to sail races. You can come on board as an individual or as a group and experience the race feeling.
