Ship Description

The BONTE PIET is a cargo sailing ship originally built in Hoogezand near Groningen in 1925 as a freighter with cargo power and was christened "De Tijd Zal't Leeren" (Time will tell).   


This cargo ship was in operation until after the end of World War II. Above all, sugar beets and other agricultural products were transported. In the years that followed, faster means of transport with more cargo space were needed. The time of sailing was over ...


At the end of the 1980s, the ship had become architecturally dated and was converted into a residential ship. In the nineties, the owners of this beautiful ship began to itch the yachtsman's blood. It was brought back to life and rebuilt into a charter ship.


Due to its shallow draft, the BONTE PIET is ideal for trips over sandbanks. Thanks to her good sailing characteristics and the competent crew, she is now a show horse on the Wadden Sea. The Wadden Sea, with its constant change of tides and meandering currents, is one of the most beautiful natural areas in Europe and at the same time the cradle of new life in the sea.  


The BONTE PIET has undergone a number of changes, including various name changes ...

The ship can accommodate up to 12 people and has as a sailing area the Wadden Sea, the IJsselmeer and inland waters.


The lounge is spacious and bright, the galley is fully equipped. Onboard there is running cold and hot water, a shower and a toilet and a 24-volt power connection.
