Sailing ship summary
De Nieuwe Zorg was originally built for freight shipping in 1896. Goods such as peat, stones and wood were transported by the historic sailing ship. Around 1950 a sailing ship was converted into a houseboat. Although the Dutch tjalk is more than 125 years old, it is equipped with all modern conveniences.
Egbert is the skipper of the Nieuwe Zorg and you sail across the Wadden Sea and the IJsselmeer. You board at Muiden, but other departure and arrival ports are possible on request. Egbert likes to teach you how to sail, but there is also time and freedom to relax in the fresh sea air. You can rent the sturdy sailing ship for day trips, but also for multi-day trips. During day trips there is room for 30 people, and during multi-day trips there is room for no less than 20 people.

“Ik ben de schipper en eigenaar van de Nieuwe Zorg. Ik vaar het schip samen met een maat en natuurlijk met onze gasten. Jaarlijks starten we het vaarseizoen met een nieuwe maat (matroos); een vriendelijke jongeling die geïnteresseerd is in een toekomst op de bruine vloot. De maat leert en samen leren wij onze gasten over het leven en werken aan boord. Een schip als de Nieuwe Zorg vaar je namelijk altijd samen! Maar natuurlijk is er ook tijd en vrijheid om te relaxen.”
