Highly recommended sailing cruise from Harlingen
The boat is highly recommended! Nice ship, and close to the center with everything within walking distance. The host is friendly and is at your service at all times. Everything looked neat and tidy. Breakfast was fine. We have had a great time!
Weekend sailing cruise
We have had a lovely overnight stay on this nice boat (or should I say ship) with our group of friends (13 people). Fine reception, clean + decent facilities and a good location. Paul is a very pleasant host. There was good and fast communication and finally we got nice tips for a restaurant with a sunny terrace in the area. We have nothing to complain about. Highly recommended!
