The ship can be found in the harbor of Monnickendam. About 30 minutes north of Amsterdam this small town is easy to reach with public transport.

About the area

Monnickendam can be found in North-Holland about 30 minutes from Amsterdam. Visiting Amsterdam is always a great plan when you’re near. With its rich history and beautiful canals it makes for a great experience.

The Grote of Sint-Nicolaaskerk is the most important church in the city of Monnickedam. The Gothic building can be found in the old city centre of the city. Original construction began in 1400 and was completed around 1510.

The oldest hand-played Carillon of the Netherlands can be found in Monnickedam. You can find it in the Townhall tower called the Speeltoren. Construction started in the late 14th century.

The first time I went on a flat bottom boat I was only a teenager. Ever since that moment I realized this is want I want. I worked as a deckhand for six years. After this I got my own ship and never looked back. That was 7 years ago and I’m still happy I made that decision. The guests are my priority, if they want to actively participate in sailing that’s fine or if they rather relax on the ship that’s fine too.

    Great sailing with this clipper

    We started our sailing journey in Monnickendam and went to the Ijsselmeer. Here we had a unforgetable sailing experience.
