Sailing ship description
Schipper Joop used to be a chef and waiter by profession. He then opted for remedial education, but in the meantime he became acquainted with sailing at a sailing camp. From then on, sailing has never disappeared from his life. He incorporated his love for sailing into his thesis. For example, he developed 'Sailing treatment' for young people in a closed ward. Something that has led to great success and where young people learned what they could do while growing up on board. 30 years ago Joop bought his first ship, the Boekanier. He cultivated it with a lot of passion and love. Joop also bought another ship with which he sailed around the world. Nowadays he only has the Buccaneer and he likes to share it with his guests.
Together with his wife Fenny and the rest of the team, he ensures an unforgettable and carefree time on board.
On the Boekanier there is room for 45 people during a day trip. If you want to stay overnight, there is room for 26 people (can be expanded with 2). The boat has 5x 2-person cabins and 4x 4-person cabins. There is a sink in each cabin and there are also 3 toilets and 3 showers on board.

‘Zeilen is voor mij alles. De vrijheid en de volledige stilte, dat vind ik prachtig. Ik geniet ook enorm van de lol die mensen hebben, bijvoorbeeld bij het wadlopen. Ik wil graag dat mensen een fijne reis met ons hebben en ben heel blij met mijn team. We regelen alles samen. Koken doe ik nog steeds graag. Bij sommige zeilraces duik ik zelf de keuken in. Mijn pannenkoeken zijn beroemd. Ik ben blij met mijn vrouw Fenny, die zelf ook de halve wereld heeft rondgevaren. Ze werkt mee en geniet ervan. Dat doen we allebei. Uit ervaring weten we hoe belangrijk gastvrijheid is. Vrolijk, nergens te beroerd voor, samen plezier hebben. Ondertussen hebben wij alles onder controle aan boord. Dat voelen onze gasten.’
