Relation event

Sporty, inspiring and fun

Are you looking for a special location for your customer or relation event? Surprise your relations with a sailing trip on a traditional sailing ship across the IJsselmeer, Markermeer or Wadden Sea. It is the ideal setting to pamper your relations. On board a ship, you are away from it all and can give your relations your full attention in a relaxed environment. No one can just sit back, whether you moor in a picturesque harbour on the IJsselmeer or opt for a cruise on the Markermeer or the Wadden Sea. The possibilities on a traditional sailing ship are endless and we offer various trips to make your sailing trip just that little bit more fun, exciting or sporty. 

Do you have certain wishes? Let us know, we are happy to think along with you.

The ships

The advantage of using a ship as hotel accommodation is that you don't have to arrange everything separately, such as rooms, transport, and meals. You have everything together and can stay in the same place, or enjoy sailing so that you are in a different location every day. A perfect combination of business, relaxation and overnight stay all in one!

The ideal location for a presentation

The ships lend themselves particularly well to a product launch, workshop, brainstorming session or (product) presentation. Many of the ships are equipped with a sound system, beamer and screen. One of the big advantages is that it is a private location and no one else can just join in and you can move around effortlessly with the whole party. This is also fun because it allows you to split the day into different parts. Sailing, presenting, mooring in a nice harbour (town) and even spending the night on board of the ship. It's all possible.

Combine business with pleasure

Keen to head out on the water with your customers and business associates for a couple of days? Make it a multi-day trip. NAUPAR's sailing ships are also ideally suited to this. They have a large deck, a beautiful dayroom, a spacious galley and comfortable cabins where you can get a great night’s sleep. The benefit of using a ship as your hotel accommodation is that you don’t have to organize everything separately, such as rooms, transport and meals. The ship has everything you need, and you can choose to stay anchored in one place or enjoy the full sailing experience, stopping in at a different location each and every day. Business, relaxation and accommodation all rolled into one. It’s the perfect combination!

Of course, you can also stay at the quay of an attractive port town and use the ship only as accommodation, whether or not combined with an activity ashore. And, if you do not sail, you will get a nice discount too.


Of course, you can prepare the meals together, the kitchen on board of the vessels are well-equipped for large groups, but it is even nicer to take a cook on board during the cruise. For trips lasting several days, the catering packages allow you to be completely taken care of. That will be optimal enjoyment!

Sailing areas

The ships mainly sail on the IJsselmeer, Markermeer, Wadden Sea and Frisian lakes. 

You can choose to sail for a day (or part of a day) or combine the cruise 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, an archipelago of islands in the Markermeer built by human hands. 

If you opt for several days, you can stay overnight in a cosy harbour town, on a Wadden Island, go offline and anchor in the middle of nature or fall dry on the Wadden. A unique experience you can only experience on a ship.

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.
