Description of the Ship

This imposing sailing ship was launched in 1903 under the name "Schouwen" in the shipyard "Duyvendijk te Papendrecht". It was originally built as a sailing cargo ship but in year 1927 the complete rigging was removed and an engine installed. Until 1989, she sailed as a cargo ship in the Benelux, before she discovered today's skipper and converted to a comfortable sailing ship.


In addition to the cozy ship saloon with a fully- equipped kitchen, the POOLSTER has 14 comfortable cabins, 2 showers and 2 toilets. After all the cabins were renewed in 2013/2014, the POOLSTER now has 2 brand new double cabins and 2 cabins for 3-4 persons (1 x bunk bed, 1 x double bed with 124 cm width). In the years 2014/2015 the Poolster got a new kitchen. Thus, there is now room for up to 36 people. For adult groups we recommend the occupancy of 34 people maximum.
