About this listing
More than 100 year old sailing ship (refurbished in 1998 ;-) with cosy mess room, 5 cabins for max. 16 guests, 2 showers and toilets and of course central heating. Near the station and the centre of Enkhuizen. You share the ship with other guests.
Staying on board of a more than 100 year old sailing ship is a special experience. The ship is still sailing at the IJsselmeer end the Waddenzee during the summer. It's an old freight ship with a whole lot of history...
You can book one or more beds/cabins, but there may be other guests on board (max. 16).
So you probably will share the mess room, the 2 showers and the 2 toilets with other guests.
If you want to book the whole ship I can send you an offer. Just contact me.
You can spend your time in the mess room, use the kitchen for making coffee or tea and the fridge for your drinks.
In summer you can enjoy the sun on deck in a hanging chair or just sitting on a bench.
Interaction with guests
As host and captain of the ship I'm interested in people and the stories they tell. I live on board and share the ship with the guests.
The ship is moored in the beautiful old harbor town Enkhuizen. There are more traditional ships around and especially in summer you can watch the life at all those ships around you... arriving and leaving, handling their sails...
Free parking: about 500 m from the ship
Train station: about 200 m from the ship
Enkhuizen is 1 hour by train from Amsterdam. The train leaves twice an hour.
In summer there is a ferry from Enkhuizen to Stavoren.
Other things to note
There may be other guests on board. In that case you will share the mess room, the showers and the toilets.
I expect respectful behavior towards other guests. I do not accept any drugs on board. Drunken people have to leave.
