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.

Aboard the Noordvaarder

All cabins have a private sink with cold running water, 220V, a reading light and storage space for your bags and belongings.
A little port hole can be opened when needed and central heating keeps the bedroom nice and warm.
