Sailing ship description

This three-master has been on the water since 1908 and has mainly transported freight for 90 years. Until 1997, when it was decided to restore the Novalis, as the ship was then called, to its former glory. After a thorough renovation into a sailing passenger ship, she has been sailing under the name Ambiance since 1999.

This historic sailing ship has no less than three masts and a sail area of 380 m2, so it is a unique experience to be able to sail on it. The Ambiance can be booked for exciting multi-day or one-day sailing trips. Book a multi-day trip for a maximum of 34 people, or go on a one-day trip with no fewer than 50 people. Enjoy the sun on the deck or help out and learn about the beautiful sailing. Safety above all, which is why there is an AED and life jackets for the children. Pets may be allowed on board in consultation.

The kitchen is well equipped with 6 gas burners, an oven, a fridge and a freezer. There is also a beer tap which offers people the opportunity to enjoy a beer on deck after a long day of sailing. There is also the possibility to enjoy the barbecue, which works on gas.

In total there are 17 bunk beds and therefore 34 sleeping places. There are two-person and four-person cabins, all with their own sink. In addition, there are 5 showers and 4 toilets on board.

Houseboat owner


Geboren in Hamburg aan de Elbe, duurde het niet lang voordat Sven als tiener zijn liefde voor het zeilen ontdekte. Eerst verkende hij met kleine bootjes de meren en rivieren van Noord-Duitsland en zelfs Denemarken. Daarna zeilde hij op steeds grotere zeiljachten en traditionele zeilschepen, eerst als matroos en later als schipper.

Hierdoor kreeg Sven ook belangstelling voor het uitgestorven tuigmakersambacht en werkte hij in heel Europa op verschillende tall ships als de 'Gorch Fock', 'Sea Cloud I' & 'Sea Cloud II' en de 'Dagmar Aan'. "Door met Nederlandse zeelieden op deze tall ships te werken, leerde ik ook meer over de Nederlandse chartervloot. Na een vaartijd en het volgen van de zeevaartschool in Enkhuizen, volgde mijn eerste seizoen als schipper op de driemaster Ambiance op het IJsselmeer. In de winter van 2007/2008 werd mijn droom werkelijkheid en werd ik de eigenaar van dit stoere schip!"

Mijn motto is: Samenzijn maakt je sterk - ervaar het zeilen!
"Net als vroeger richt ik me tijdens de reizen aan boord van de Ambiance op beleving en samenzijn. Ook mijn ervaring als jeugdleider en oud-student in het onderwijs helpt me daarbij. Het schip als platform voor een leerzame reis vol belevenissen - dat is mijn doel, wanneer de Ambiance uitvaart."

Ben je op zoek naar een duurzame vakantie, met veel afwisseling, dan ben je bij Sven aan boord van de Ambiance in goede handen!
