Sailing ship description
Visit Amsterdam and make your stay unforgettable by renting this sailing ship. The '1896' is especially suitable for groups that want to make their visit to Amsterdam even more special. On request we can take you out for longer or shorter trips during the day or the evening.
The ship was originally built as a freight ship, transporting turf, stone and timber. Around 1950 she was renovated and transformed into a houseboat. Around 20 years later she found her new destiny: hosting guests from all over the world who want to have an unforgettable experience aboard a traditional sailing charter. In total there are four 2-person cabins and three 4-person cabins.

1 Review - Dutch Tjalk 1896 - sleeps 20
We had a wonderful weekend with our friends on this ship, docked in Amsterdam. The harbor is easy to reach from central station. Just a 20 minute ride by tram and you're right where you need to be. The harbor is cozy and has various bars and restaurants. At night we went back into the city to celebrate our friends birthday. Aboard you will feel like a real sailing crew because of the history and original details of the ship: wonderful. Highly recommended for larger groups who want to stay together!
