About the Vriendschap

Built in the year 1898, the Hagenaar Vriendschap (Friendship) is one of the oldest ships of our fleet.

Hagenaars are typical Dutch ships, built specifically to pass the low bridges in the Hague.
When trade over water came to an end, the owners decided to ready the Vriendschap for a career as a charter boat.

Skipper Johan has been sailing for years and literally knows everything about the Dutch waters.
He loves entertaining his guests with interesting facts and stories about the Wadden Sea, the Wads and Lake IJssel.

Whether you wish to plan a family trip or a weekend out on the sea, the Vriendschap really lives up to its name and promises nothing but a good time.

In the cosy day room below deck, comfortable seats surround the wooden tables.
A radio and CD-player will set the mood and central heating keeps the room on a pleasant temperature during the colder periods.

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