The Frisian forkrigged barge 'De Vriendschap' [The Friendship], or ‘Tjalk' sailing barge as it is known in Dutch, was built in Leeuwarden in 1902 as a single-mast sailing cargo vessel. Our Tjalk was mainly used for transporting heavy materials.

In 2010 Remco and Yteke have converted the vessel into a superb, spacious charter vessel that provides overnight accomodation for 16 guests.
Book a magnificent sailing holiday with Zeilcharter De Vriendschap and enjoy sharing with us the beauty and peace of the UNESCO Waddensea and the IJsselmeer. Join us for an sturdy sailing trip and together we'll brave the turbulent waves and taste the briny wet.

You can also book a wonderful cultural trip, either as a group or individual. We'll sail through the Frisian countryside from Harlingen to the Lauwersmeer, across the Dokkumer Ee, once in a while we'll tie up in a small village to enjoy a coffee together at a delightful Friesian outdoor café. During the trip we will tell you all about the uniqueness of the Frisian culture. It's an amazing journey.

In the Lauwersmeer we'll seek out an island and experience a full night of total tranquillity. On board ‘De Vriendschap' you'll find excellent, cosy and warm accommodation. We can also cook delicious meals for you if you want. In any event, we'll make sure that you disembark completely rested and who knows...perhaps with a new ‘Friendship'.

On board the Frisian Tjalk ‘De Vriendschap' you'll find excellent accommodation for either a thrilling sailing adventure or a very peaceful and quiet sailing holiday. We look forward to hail you on board our fully renovated and pleasant vessel.
