Company outing

Sailing as a company outing

This week no computer, phone calls or overfull mailboxes today. You and your colleagues will get a breath of fresh air on one of NAUPAR's special traditional sailing ships. There is no better way to show your appreciation for your colleagues. The sailing trip is impressive, the location unique and you and your colleagues can relax or actively sail along. In addition, you can pamper them with our extensive catering options. Whatever your business or festive reason, you are sure to impress your colleagues with a traditional sailing ship.

The ships

The traditional sailing ships at NAUPAR are excellent for a trip with your colleagues. From luxury to basic, most ships have a large deck, a beautiful dayroom, a spacious galley and several comfortable cabins where you can spend the night. An ideal combination for multi-day training courses, business meetings or a fun multi-day outing with your team.

Would you rather not sail? Then use the ship as a meeting and/or hotel accommodation in the city of your choice.

Fresh air, teambuilding or a meeting

Would you like to sail actively, rather relax or do you have a meeting or presentation scheduled? On a traditional sailing ship, you are at the helm. You decide about the type of ship, catering and programme. On a traditional ship, you have the freedom to arrange it as you wish and ultimately decide what the trip will look like. And the nice thing is, you don't need any sailing experience. The crew will be happy to teach you.

Daytrip on a beautiful three-masted vessel

You and your colleagues could (for example) spend a day, afternoon or evening sailing on a beautiful three-masted vessel such as the Willem Barentsz. To make things easy for you, NAUPAR offers a variety of package deals for these trips. For example, you might want to take a large group on an afternoon sailing trip including drinks on the IJsselmeer or on an all-inclusive barbecue trip at sunset. What’s more, NAUPAR has various catering and entertainment options at its disposal, such as a barista and/or cocktail workshop, live music or a DJ. The possibilities are endless. 

Multi-day trip

Looking to get away from it all with your colleagues for a couple of days? NAUPAR’s sailing vessels are perfect for this as well. They have a large deck, a fantastic day room, a spacious galley and comfortable cabins where you can get a great night’s sleep. Along with your group you’ll be able to sail to a variety of picturesque harbour towns around the IJsselmeer or Markermeer, run aground on the Wadden Sea or use the ship as hotel accommodation in a city of your choice. 

Catering on board

Enjoy your stay to the max with NAUPAR's extensive catering options. From tasty snacks to a buffet, walking dinner or a served dinner during a daytrip.

Would you like to pamper your colleagues? Then choose a catering arrangement including a professional chef. The chef will take the food and drinks on board and prepare the meals for your group during the cruise. This way, you will have even more time for each other!

Wide choice of sailing areas and ports

The ships mainly sail on the IJsselmeer, Markermeer, IJssel Delta, Wadden Sea and Frisian lakes. You can choose to sail for a day (or part of a day) or combine the sailing trip with a visit to a picturesque port town, a nice museum or a beautiful nature reserve such as the National Park New Land, the Marker Wadden or the IJsseldelta. If you opt for several days, you can spend the night in a cosy port town, on a Wadden Island, go offline and anchor in the middle of nature or beach on the bottom of the Wadden sea. A unique experience you can only experience on a ship with a flat bottom.

And you can choose not only the sailing areas, but also the port of embarkation and disembarkation. With NAUPAR you can choose from no fewer than 16 different departure harbours, spread across the various sailing areas.
