  • built in 1904, this klipper aak was used as a freighter in Dutch waters until the 1970s, first as a sailing ship, later converted to a motor freighter.
  • since 1990 re-converted to a 2-masted sailing ship for sailing with tourists along the old Hanseatic and Zuiderzee towns, her shallow draft and flat hull enables sailing close to the coastline and a walk for the sailing guest on the mudflats during low tide, offers active sailing for guests.
