Ship Description

The BORNRIF is a 17 meter long North Sea botter built in 1914. The comfortable ship has wide and high side decks and is very stable in the water and is therefore very child-friendly.
The BORNRIF is the perfect ship for a wonderful sailing trip on the Wadden and IJsselmeer with friends, family or colleagues. Tjalling van der Zee is the new and very proud owner of the ship since January 2021. Tjalling has a lot of experience in charter sailing and can't wait to show his guests the most beautiful places on the Wadden Sea and IJsselmeer!
The ship underwent a major overhaul in 2021, where "comfort on board" was a top priority. The BORNRIF has a cozy day room, a beautiful and well equipped kitchen and one 3-person cabins and two 4-person cabin. However, in order to offer an optimal sailing experience and the associated comfort, we usually rent the ship to a maximum of 6 people.
