Sailing ship summary
Hoist the sails of one of the oldest still sailing ships of the brown fleet: the Antonius. The charter ship from 1898 is the perfect place to enjoy the water with a large group. Where many other ships have been scrapped and replaced by more modern ships, the Antonius has been restored to its former glory and now serves as the perfect ship for sailing trips with classmates, family or friends for up to 14 people when it comes to several days and up to 25 people when it comes to a day trip.
The ship was thoroughly restored in 1982 and 1994 in authentic style, including the installation of all possible sanitary facilities.
Sailing ship description
The Antonius is described as rustic and authentic. Where the ship transported peat in the past, it is now mainly a place for fun and adventure.
Skipper Carool (1964) determines the course of the trip. Do you opt for the Wadden Sea, the Frisian Lakes or the Markermeer? Depending on the weather and the duration of the trip, Carool will choose the best route for you. Carool grew up on a shipyard with lots of water and boats around her. After his education at the gardening and agricultural school, his love for sailing quickly resurfaced, so he finally decided to buy his own ship to share his passion with other people.
The ship can accommodate 14 people overnight. The accommodations are all equipped with their own sink. A cabin is for 2-6 people.
How to get there
Depending on your chosen departure point, the skipper will tell you how to get there. In general, parking is available near the departure ports.
About the area
Departure ports: Amsterdam, Muiden (other departure and arrival ports on request).
The Wadden Sea is part of the Wadden Sea coast of the North Sea and is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
When we sail on the IJsselmeer, the largest lake in the Netherlands, fishing is also possible. On request we can moor at one of the villages, such as Makkum, Stavoren or Lemmer.
Sailing ship owner
“Ik ben geboren in 1964 in Kockengen. Mijn vader had een scheepswerf en ik groeide op met water en boten. Ik heb een opleiding gevolgd aan de land- en tuinbouwschool maar al gauw kwam ik er achter dat zeilen mijn passie is. Vanaf 1983 ben ik zetschipper geweest op verschillende schepen, totdat ik in 1997 mijn eigen schip heb gekocht.
Het is voor mij belangrijk dat mijn gasten het naar hun zin hebben. We zullen dan ook samen in overleg bepalen waar de reis heen zal gaan. Dit is wel afhankelijk van de duur van de reis en van het weer. Kiest u voor mijn mooie schip de Antonius, dan verwelkom ik u met veel plezier aan boord.
Hartelijke groet en hopelijk tot ziens!”
