Sail into Summer

What better way to see the Netherlands from a different view than aboard a private historical yacht. Escape the crowds, kick back and set your mode to cruise control as our professional skippers take you on an enchanting voyage of discovery.

Does a daytrip to a traditional Dutch fisherman’s village float your boat? You’ll feel like you’ve travelled back in time as you discover pretty little wooden houses, old harbors and the hustle and bustle of fishermen going about their business, not to mention a few locals in traditional costume. Sit back and soak up the views as the breathtaking coastal scenery passes you by, or lend the skipper a hand on deck if you fancy. A stop off for lunch provides the perfect opportunity to explore the village by foot and feast on the fresh catch of the day, accompanied by a perfectly paired glass of wine (or three!)

 

For those with a little more time on their hands why not cruise the Wadden Sea, a UNESCO world heritage site, and indulge in a little island hopping. The stunning five Wadden islands (located in the North of the Netherlands) boast spectacular seascapes and are home to a vast array of wildlife including gorgeous grey seals. At low tide, we’ll moor up on the beach so you can stretch your legs and, if we’re harbor-side, go foraging for fresh oysters and mussels. You’ll need wellies and a willingness to embrace the mud, but the ‘all you can eat’ oyster feast that awaits is well worth the effort.   

The yacht itself is a charmingly traditional Dutch flat-bottom boat originally designed for coastal fishing. Its spacious wooden deck accommodates a large table that seats 10 for breakfast, lunch and dinner, where a la carte catering is provided. Below deck there are three cabins plus a saloon with an open kitchen and comfortable dining table. The master cabin accommodates two adults, and the other cabins either 2 adults or 3 children, with toilet and shower facilities.

As for your cruise companions, a wonderful personal chef and experienced skipper are on hand to take care of your every need. All you need to do is get in touch when the time is right and we’ll make your dream cruise a reality here on Dutch waters!
