Sailing ships with departure port Hoorn
Embark on a large sailing ship in Hoorn under the watchful eye of the Boys of Bontekoe. The VOC past of Hoorn is clearly reflected in the old town and in the ports where the charter ships are moored. The ships have been given a unique place under the historic Main Tower, on the outskirts of this worth seeing city. You walk from the harbor to the center with the many national monuments in. You will find restaurants and cafés scattered throughout the city. The central square in the inner city is for the most part surrounded with starting points. There are also a few restaurants on the harbor. You do not get bored there is plenty to see. You see the ships coming and going and there is always activity.
Get on and sail with us
From Hoorn you can sail all over the Markermeer (the southern part of the IJsselmeer): towards Amsterdam or through the lock towards Enkhuizen, Stavoren or even further north: the Wadden Sea. The combination of the spacious water and historic harbor towns make the IJsselmeer the ideal waterway for one shorter or longer sailing trip. You can rent an entire ship with skipper and sailor via Zeilendeschepen.nl so that you can take a day trip or multi-day sailing trip with your family, colleagues or friends. There are also sailing trips that start on the IJsselmeer for individuals. These are mostly completely arranged trips from 3 days to a week.
