The 'Vrouw Leentje' was built in 1894 in Krimpen aan de IJssel, the Netherlands. She is a real 'tjalk', also called a 'Zeeuwse Poon', and was used for barge sailing on the often rough Zeeland waterways. She was thoroughly restored in 1996, and meets all the latest comfort and safety standards.
During the day, the casement doors and windows in the saloon of the 'Vrouw Leentje' allow guests to enjoy the fresh outdoors. In the evening, the saloon is a pleasant spot to relax after all the activities. Guests are in direct contact with the helmsman in the enclosed, child-friendly guest cockpit. Fans of the Frisian islands may wish to request Medemblik as their departure port.
Whether you are a fanatical sailor or a lover of luxury holidays, you are guaranteed to enjoy the fascinating, varied sailing trips aboard the 'Vrouw Leentje'.
