Sailing on the Vlieter flat bottom

The Vlieter sails with passengers on the Dutch inland waterways, including the IJsselmeer and Waddenzee. To be allowed to sail here, she meets the current inspection requirements for passenger ships and crew. The guesthouse with open galley, sanitary facilities and cabins is located in the former cargo hold.

The open galley is generously equipped with pots & pans and everything you normally need to prepare and serve meals, except electric kitchen aids.

Sailing area

From our home port of Makkum (Friesland) we sail the Wadden Sea (UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2009!), The IJsselmeer, the Frisian lakes and further inland. A nice and fast sailing ship to get a breath of fresh air with friends, family, colleagues or acquaintances. Companies, associations and schools are also very welcome. As a smaller group you also feel completely at home. De Vlieter is not too big for that.
Our advice is to come with a minimum of 6 people. The rent for the ship remains the same; however, you have more space and comfort on a beautiful ship. Enjoy the peace and quiet on the water, completely away from the daily hustle and bustle and you don't have to travel far for it.


  • The mentioned multi-day prices are for groups up to a maximum of 14 people. If you come with a larger group, a small amount will be added.
  • Advance stay € 240
  • Final cleaning € 90, - to be paid in cash on board
