A unique stay in Holland

The smallest ship offer comfortable cabins for a maximum of 12 guests, while our largest boats have room for no less than 37 persons. On day trips, it is even possible to board with up to 60 guests.
How you wish to spend your stay or wherever you want to sail is completely up to you; every sailing trip starts with a briefing by the skipper, in which you plan a course for the vacation together.

Whether you are looking for an exclusive way to work on teambuilding with your company or want to enjoy a salty breeze with family, our skippers happily welcome you aboard.

Overnight stay on board

Our ships are fitted with a nice seating area on deck, a day room below deck, a well-equipped kitchen with a fridge, central heating and on board sanitary facilities.
But one of the best parts of staying on a ship is sleeping in a real cabin!
Mostly varying from 2-person cabins to 4-person cabins, all have bunks beds, a sink with running water, limited storage room and central heating.


Below deck, a kitchen provides you with all you need to make your own meals. Here you can find a stove, a fridge, a sink, pans, all necessary kitchen utensils, plates, cutlery and glasses. In some cases, the ship’s kitchen has additional features, such as a dish washer or a freezer.

Should you not want to cook all meals yourself, simply let our catering service take care of the matter. Whether this concerns breakfast, lunch or a barbecue on deck, simply contact us for more information about on board catering.
