Wedding on a ship

Nothing more romantic than getting married on a ship, toast Champagne on deck with your loved ones and sail into the sunset together!

Our traditional ships are the perfect decor for a whimsical ceremony and allow up to 60 wedding guests to enjoy the party on board.
We also offer the option of sailing back to port with your day guests, to dock with another ship and continue the festivities with the evening guests. To really treat your friends and family to something special, we will even lift the anchor again for a short sailing trip over the Wadden Sea.

Marriage is the absolute highlight of a love story, and Rederij Vooruit would be honoured to be part of your big day.


The Iselmar is a breathtaking clipper from the year 1902, impressing with her luxurious interior of varnished wood and a surprising amount of space.
During the wedding ceremony and on the following sailing trip, the Iselmar easily offers room for up to 60 guests to move around comfortably.
Below deck, divided over 13 cabins, 34 persons can stay for the night.


From the year 1904, the coast cruiser Koh-I-Noor truly is the cherry on the cake.
The elegant ship is fitted with two cosy day rooms below deck, and stylishly decorated offers room up to 60 guests.
For your convenience, all 9 cabins, accommodating 24 persons in total, have their own toilet and shower unit.
