About the ship

This sailing vessel was built in 1906. With 25 meters length and 5 meters width, this clipper has a shallow draft of only 1,1 meter, enabling her to cruise on the shallow Frisian waters as well. The ship was transformed into a charter ship in 1977 and has entertained countless groups ever since. She has been well kept over the years and offers a great offshore sailing experience.

With its shallow depth this clipper is perfect for shallow water sailing. This allows for sailing on the Frisian inland waters. A way of sailling that few ships over this is something truly unqiue.
