Sailing Ship De Lotus

History meets modern

The Lotus can be booked for groups of up to 20 people, families, friends, colleagues or for events. For day trips, weekends, midweeks or longer.

The uniqueness of ships such as the Lotus is the minimal draft of the ship, which ensures that it is possible with the right tide to fall dry on a sandbank below one of the islands. After which people can walk on the seabed, barbeques on a sandbar can catch crabs with the children and gather their own dinner for mussels, oysters and cockles.

Sailing Ship The Waterwolf

Luxury on the water

De Waterwolf distinguishes itself as a ship by luxury. Both in the form of a spacious day room with a spacious kitchen with a beer tap, as well as the ingenuity to sail quickly with this ship. All winches work hydraulically and the Waterwolf is equipped with sporty equipment. The knowledge of the experienced skipper ensures that every trip is unique.

Sailing trips on the Wadden Sea

The hidden treasure of the Netherlands

The Wadden Sea is a region forgotten by some, while it is included in the UNESCO World Heritage list. An ever changing nature reserve, with beautiful views, beautiful sunsets and of course the islands with their picturesque villages. Sailing in this area is an experience in itself, one that you will never forget. This in combination with a skipper who knows the area very well and has years of experience with sailing on the Wadden Sea, creates a unique experience every time.
