Description of the Ship

The beautiful clipper has a long history. In 1904 he was built as a proud sailor and sailed the North Sea coast from Belgium over the Dutch waters into the German Bay. In 1950, removed the masts were removed and a powerful engine was built to use the FRANS HORJUS as a freighter.


In the summer of 1997, the new owner began to rebuild the freighter into a beautiful sailor as you can experience it today. From the salon you have a clear view over the sea. The large kitchen offers plenty of cooking facilities and the bright, cozy furniture under deck ensures a relaxed well-being on board. With 12 cozy cabins, the Frans Horjus is the perfect accommodation for groups of all kinds.
