Day trip ship the Egberdina

The Egberdina is one of the five oldest sailing ships still sailing in the Netherlands and therefore has a rich history. It is built in 1882, sails as sharply as a yacht and is so quiet that seasickness hardly ever occurs.
On the upper deck on the Egberdina there is plenty of room to quietly enjoy the silver on the heads of the water, the endless space and the often beautiful air. But if you want more action, then that is also possible. You can steer or hoist sails and help the ship of 70 tons with almost 300 m & sup2; let the sail cleave through the water. Experience for this is not necessary, nor is knowledge of complicated sailing terms. The crew is happy to introduce you to the world of sailing and is always on standby.
Below deck you can enjoy a great meal or a nice drink in the stylish salon. For lunch or dinner the ship will drop anchor if desired or moor at a port of your choice.
