The traditional tjalk barge Ouderzorg was built in 1914, on wharf De Piip in Drachten.
After a drastic renovation that gave her the right features for sailing as a charter ship, she joined the fleet of Rederij Vooruit. Little draft makes her a perfect choice for those who want to explore the shallow waters of Friesland.
Skippers Niklas and Anna love sailing the Wadden Sea. As an ambassador of the Wad, Anna can tell you everything about the beautiful and foremost remarkable Dutch nature. And should you catch any clams or prawns, simply ask your skipper to serve you up a nice seafood fry afterwards.
Sailing with the Ouderzorg truly is one big adventure. An adventure that starts as soon as you step aboard!
