Step aboard our sturdy tjalk Eersteling and get ready for a great holiday!
Discover the beautiful Wadden Sea, Lake IJssel and the Frisian Lakes with this truly wonderful ship.

Built in 1908, the Eersteling landed her career as a cargo ship. However after having transported freight for a large number of years, she underwent a full renovation in 1993, which saw her fitted with a new set of masts and sails. Finally the interior got refurbished and she was all set to persue her path as a charter ship.

Since Skipper Roberto loves to show you the best places on the water, he will definitely make sure it’s going to be a trip to remember.

Aboard the Eersteling

In the cosy day room of the Eersteling, you will instantly find yourself at home. Central heating was placed to keep you warm and the authentic ship’s interior creates a great atmosphere to relax in. The spacious deck provides enough room to comfortably sit your entire sailing company, adults as well as children. While the mid deck serves you a great view of the sea and passing landscapes, the altered quarter deck offers spectacular sights.

Below decks is accommodated with 20 beds, divided over 8 cabins.
Because duvets are included in the price, you do not have to bring your own. Each cabin is fitted with a sink with hot and cold running water, central heating, a reading light and storage space.

The fully equipped kitchen provides in all needs to prepare your meals.
In here a fridge, a freezer, a coffee machine and all necessary cooking utensils such as pots are at your disposal. The barbecue on deck guarantees fun times! Ask us about the many possibilities concerning catering if you do not feel cooking in the galley yourself.

On board you will find 2 showers and 2 toilets. This also means you do not have to depend on a harbor for sanitary facilities.
