The Holland Sail fleet
The fleet consists of 28 privately owned traditional sailing vessels, like tjalks or clippers that have sailed the Dutch waters for over a century.
The ships in our fleet make port in the towns of Enkhuizen, Harlingen and Muiden. You can recognize them by the flying colours of Holland Sail (purple, of course). There's a variety of the faster clippers or traditional tjalks - a dutch type of barge with a flat bottom instead of a keel. Each ship has a unique layout allowing for a different numbers to stay on board. Nearly all of our ships have huts, making them suitable for staying on board days or weeks.
- Our sailing boats meet high safety standards.
- People of all ages are welcome, including young children.
- Everyone can volunteer on deck. The skipper and mate provide instructions and clear explanations so everyone can participate.
