Sailing ship description
Decide for yourself how you want to enjoy optimally on board Vrijheid and how you want to fill in the day. The deck offers enough space to find a nice spot and enjoy the sun. Or opt for the former wheelhouse, now furnished as a lounge area.
The deckhouse is also a lovely place, with a spacious seating area, bar, beer tap and patio doors. Or what do you think of the very spacious day room? This offers every opportunity to discuss all the adventures of the day next to the fireplace while enjoying a warm evening meal, prepared in the open kitchen.
However, it might be even more fun to help skipper Ruud with hoisting the sails! You can also choose to fully relax in the Finnish sauna on board.
When evening falls, there is nothing better than falling asleep in your spacious sleeping cabin, which by the way is all equipped with a sink and heating. One sleeping cabin has extra luxury with a sitting area and even a rain shower! This four-person cabin, like two other four-person cabins, is very easy to convert into a two-person cabin. All beds are 2 meters, six beds are even 2.40 meters.
With Vrijheid, day trips are possible with a maximum of 60 people. For multi-day trips, the maximum of 34 people applies.
How to get there
The harbor in Enkhuizen is easily accessible by car and the train station is also very close. In consultation with the skipper, you can agree exactly where you want to board.
About the area
Freedom sails over the IJsselmeer, the beautiful Wadden Sea, the Frisian lakes and the Markermeer. Skipper Ruud sails past all the pleasant harbors on the IJsselmeer and Markermeer. On the Wadden Sea you can enjoy the tranquility and the endless horizon with waves that glisten from the radiant sun. The Frisian Lakes is a more touristic area that attracts many water sports enthusiasts, especially in summer.
