On board the barge Boreas we focus on feeling at home and socializing. But if you want good sailing fanatic, the Boreas is also the right vessel. Anything goes, nothing has. The ultimate holiday feeling!
The Boreas sailing mainly on the Wadden Sea, but also at the request of the Frisian lakes and the IJsselmeer. In high season we try to attract more eastward of the Wadden Sea where it is peaceful and quiet and we can fabulous beaching on the Wad. This is truly a unique experience. The sky is close and very rarely can you even see the Northern Lights. We then pick clams or have a barbecue on a sandbank. The beautiful Islands of the Wadden Sea are also a great experience to visit!
The Boreas is ideal for a weekend or week away with family or friends as well as companies or associations regularly stay at the Boreas. Grietje, the skipper's wife, has worked for many years as a coach in counseling and can get along with groups. Henk, the skipper has been sailing his whole life, He knows the Wadden Sea inside out and if you want to learn something about sailing or tides is right up to him.
The Boreas was built in 1897 on a Groninger yard. The ship is called a flat bottom and sailed mainly between Denmark and Sweden. The Boreas is suitable for a stay of 16 people. The home harbour of the Boreas is Harlingen. In the winter we are with the Boreas in Amsterdam where we rent the ship as hotel!
We hope to see you at the Boreas to welcome you for a pleasant and memorable sailing holiday!
