Sailing ship description
The Parilicium was built in 1893 as a two-masted river clipper. The ship sailed in every canal and river in the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium and also went to lakes, the Southern Sea, and the Wadden Sea. The ship transported among other potatoes, grain, hay, and coal.
The clipper is a large ship, with lots of space for all the guests. On the deck, you can find a comfortable space to relax, enjoy the sun and to have a good time with your fellow sailors! Since the deck is large and easily passable, without tricky steps, there is enough space to lay down on a towel and enjoy the beautiful weather!
Below deck, a beautiful and comfortable saloon is present. There is enough space for a large group. Here you can play games, have a nice chat with each other, or rest after a long day spent on the water. You can cozy up near the wood stove and have a refreshing drink.
