Brown fleet

Under the heading brown fleet, there is still intensive sailing with traditional ships. The brown fleet is the designation for professional charter sailing with traditional sailing ships and motor ships in the Netherlands, which were formerly known as cargo ships. Today, many owners have extensively renovated their ship and equipped the interior with living space, rooms and a kitchen. In most cases, the ships are also equipped with toilets and showers, which means that the use of sanitary facilities does not require mooring.

Traditional ships are often affiliated with a shipping company, to serve as a charter ship or house boat.
