How to get there

This ship has three homeports, contact the shipper about the location you would like to start your sailing journey. The ports are the following: Enkhuizen, Amsterdam, Lelystad. Enkhuizen can be found north of Amsterdam with quick public transport available. Lelystad can be found in Flevoland, it's about 45 minutes from Amsterdam.

About the area

The inner-city of Enkhuizen is riddled with canals and is surrounded by settlement walls dating back to the 17th century. You can see these historic sights when you stroll through the city which has a lot of authentic buildings.

There is plenty of amazing places to visit in Amsterdam! Think about the iconic canals or rijksmuseum.

    Great Dutch Sailing charter cruise

    We had a very nice week on the Mare fan Fryslan. The food was perfect and very varied. The entire crew was very friendly. The proposed tours incl. many cool places to see, there was truly something for everyone. Greetings to the entire crew and keep it up. Will not forget this holiday and recommend it in any case.

    Super crew, nice cabins, thanks!

    We had a great week sailing with this Schooner. The crew was top, the cabins are comfortable and the food is first class. The bike rides for everyone and as much as you wanted. The most beautiful was gliding over the water at sunshine inundate blessings. Enjoy the silence and look up to the sky. Gladly visit you again.
