About the Risico

The traditional clipper Risico was completed in 1895, on the wharf of van den Adel in Papendrecht.

Built in the glory days of sailing transport, the Risico looks back on a long history of shipping goods and trade.
Today, after over 120 years, she still proves to be an excellent ship.

Skipper Daan was born to sail.
Keen on keeping away from the common tourist spots, he will take you to the most wonderful places of the Wadden Sea, Lake IJssel and the Frisian Lakes.

Step aboard the Risico and experience the true freedom of sailing!
