Sailing ship summary
Be welcome aboard the Anthony, an authentic sailing ship that accommodates up to 14 guests. This rustic sailing clipper was built in 1898(!) and is one of the oldest still sailing ships in The Netherlands. Once she was used to transport turf, and now she can be your floating home docked in Amsterdam. On request you can go sailing the IJsselmeer and - if you have enough time to spend - even the Wadden Sea.
Sailing ship description
This is the chance to stay on one of the oldest still sailing ships of the famous 'brown fleet'. These old sailing ships were mostly used to transport sand, rocks and peat. Many of these clippers have been demolished in the course of time to be replaced by modern, fast motorized vessels. Fortunately, the Antony was restored to its former glory in 1982. Now she serves as a comfortable charter ship, where guests can experience what it’s like to be sailing on such a historic ship. In 1994 a second thorough restoration followed, in which all possible sanitary facilities were installed.
Layout of this sailing ship
You will find a dinning area which can seat up to 18 people, here you can find a buffet. The ship also has a professional 6-pit stove, large oven, fridge an freezer. The ship contains eight bedrooms, four 4-person rooms and four 2-person rooms. There are both male and female bathrooms with sinks and showers. There are two toilets on the ship and a shower.
With the historic sailing ship Anthony it’s possible to both book a day trip or a multiple day sailing trip. If you choose to book a day trip this vessel has a capacity of 25 people. When booking a multiple day cruise the capacity is 14. The departure port for this ship is either Amsterdam or Muiden. This can be discussed with the captain of the ship. You can go sailing the following waters: the IJsselmeer, Frisian Lakes, Markermeer, Waddenzee. A captain will steer the ship, so no sailing experience is required.
How to get there
The Anthony is docked in a charming harbor in Muiden (near Amsterdam) during your stay. From here it is very easy to get into the centre of Amsterdam. There is a straight connection by train to Central Station.
About the area
I grew up around boats and the water, my dad owned a shipyard so from a young age I learned everything about them. I knew this was my passion and in 1983 I was started working on various ships. Until 1997 when I purchased one of my own.
The most important thing for me is knowing that my guests are enjoying themselves. Everything about the trip we do is in consultation. I hope to welcome you abroad Antonius!

Pim - the Netherlands
We had a great time sailing on the Wadden sea. With the instructions from the crew we felt like real sailors ourselfs.
