Description of the Ship

The Spes Mea is a seafaring tjalk, publicly available for, among others, group sailing trips on the Wadden Seas and the IJsselmeer. The ship is available to rent for an unforgettable sailing trip to, for example, the isles of Friesland, with no sailing experience whatsoever required.

The skipper and mate will ease you in and familiarize you with the vessel. Below deck feature excellent accomodations for any group consisting of up to 20 people.

This flat-bottomed sailing ship, part of the so-called ''Bruine Vloot'' (The Brown Fleet), is popularly used by many for sailing trips to the Wadden Isles and the Ijsselmeer cities during their holidays.
