Sailing ship summary
Step aboard and sail over the IJsselmeer, the Markermeer, the Frisian lakes and the Wadden Sea. Learn about nature and the waters you sail on together with enthusiastic skipper Ruud. Ruud likes to teach you how to sail and to lead the impressive sailing ship over the water together.
Sailing with the Meridian can of course be done purely on manpower, but the ship has many adjustments to sail to the maximum with less effort. The electric sword and winches for operating the jib and jib make it a lot easier for you. This makes sailing accessible to everyone.
Prefer to relax? Of course there is also room for this, enjoying the sun on the deck or in the cozy cockpit with open kitchen and bar.
The Meridian can be booked for a day trip, where there is room for 35 people. During the multi-day trips, the Meridian offers sleeping space for no less than 24 people.
