Memorable experiences on the Boekanier

Blog - Auf der Boekanier gibt es immer was zu erleben

Joop is the proud owner of the Boekanier. He makes every effort to please his guests while sailing this 33 metre-long clipper.The Boekanier’s home port is Makkum, from where it sails to the IJsselmeer and the Wadden Sea, Joop's favourite destination. Why? Read on!

The Boekanier’s speciality is low-tide sailing on the Wad

“IJsselmeer, Wadden Sea...I’ll pretty much sail wherever my guests want,” responds Joop when asked about his favourite destination. But the Wadden mudflats are his personal favourite. “You have so many opportunities there to give the group an unforgettable adventure,” he continues.Like fishing for shrimp while sailing. But the most unique adventure he offers is low-tide sailing, by which the boat ‘parks’ on a sandbank on the Wad and together they barbecue over a fire made of driftwood. “There’s nothing like it!“ adds Joop, full of enthusiasm.
