Ship and ship’s interior

A Zeilcharter De Vriendschap verkleind exterieur A gepoetst

After its 15-month renovation in 2010, the Frisian tjalk De Vriendschap is a wonderfully spacious charter ship with a lovely spacious saloon, high ceilings, a large kitchen, plenty of sanitary facilities and 12 berths.

Luxury, light, comfort and, last but not least, cosiness can be found on our sturdy, traditional sailing ship.
The beautiful bright saloon and the corridor have a standing height of 2.70 metres.

As soon as you enter, you will experience a feeling of space and peace. Our guests are always surprised by the beautiful light atmosphere!Our total number of geusts is 12. We have opted for fewer sleeping places to offer you as much space as possible on a ship.
You will find everything on board for a carefree, tough sailing holiday.
And again and again we make changes and improvements to offer our guests the best sense of comfort.
