About the Noordvaarder

The sturdy clipper Noordvaarder first touched water in 1909, initially built as a cargo vessel.

To keep up with time, 1945 saw her fitted with a motor.
In 1986, she regained her original look by getting back her two masts and a 2010 overhaul turned her into the luxurious charter ship.
A final renovation in 2017 replaced all sanitary facilities and gave the kitchen a brand new update.

Step aboard this fantastic ship and explore the Netherlands with a traditional ship.
Michael and Elske will happily show you the wonderful world of the Wadden Sea and Lake IJssel!

With the Afsluitdijk closeby, Lake IJssel and the Frisian Lakes are easily reached as well. Step aboard our traditional ships and explore the Netherlands!
