Description of the ship

The Grootvorst in 1896, initially as a river clipper built up in the thirties she was a sailing cargo ship. In 1985 what happened to her many ships came: she was no longer profitable as a freighter. In the same year, the Grootvorst completely renovated into a luxury passenger sailing vessel. She had three masts with 520 m² of sail and now it is still a beautiful three masted sailing clipper.


Lots of space with deck, from the cockpit, access to the salon. In this cozy sheltered accommodation can sit with a nice view over the water. Downstairs is a comfortable day room and kitchen, fully equipped with catering stove, oven, hot box, dishwasher and beer pump. A large cold storage makes this "kitchen" to a professional kitchen. And if you want good barbecue, you can use a large gas barbecue.


A stay at the 40 meters long three masted clipper Grootvorst is a combination of sporty sailing a luxury accommodation.
