Houseboat 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.

Houseboat 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.
