About the Victoria-S

The bow barge Victoria-S first saw light in 1876, at a shipyard in the township of Roodevaart.
In order to be able to transport cargo over the Dutch canals in the years to come, the ship was given a major rebuild in 1898.
It was not until 1996 that this traditional barge got turned into a charter ship, with skippers Michael and Elske being her proud owners.

Step aboard the Victoria-S and check in for a wonderful sailing trip over the Wadden Sea, Lake IJssel and the Frisian Lakes!
