Family day

Further information on an outing with the family on a NAUPAR vessel

Our ships have a large deck, a fantastic day room, a spacious galley and comfortable cabins where you can get a great night’s sleep. Whilst out on the water the skipper will get your family members actively involved and show them the ropes. Which is great, as these sailing activities bring unity to the group in a relaxed manner. That said, you can also choose to chill out, spending the whole day in a sunny place with one another on sitting on deck with a book! 

Sailing area

NAUPAR’s vessels have been sailing on the IJsselmeer, Markermeer, the Frisian lakes and the Wadden Sea for many years now. During your family outing you can consult with the skipper and sail to the destination of your choice. And the possibilities are endless: you could (for example) call in at the most historic towns around the IJsselmeer, visit a nice museum, build sandcastles with the kids on the beach, drop anchor and have a barbecue in a beautiful nature reserve, or run aground on the Wadden Sea. Our skippers know the sailing area like the back of their hand and will manage to find the best spots for you.

Catering packages

All ships have a well-equipped galley, where you can prepare meals together with your family members. Though another possibility is to spoil yourselves and have us take care of the catering for you. Or even hire in a chef to prepare meals for you on board. Not got the time to do the shopping yourself? NAUPAR will be happy to take care of this for you and have everything delivered to the ship before you set sail. NAUPAR offers a variety of all-inclusive and catering packages. You won’t have to give it another thought and can simply board the vessel for a carefree family outing. Please don't hesitate to ask us for more details.

NAUPAR’s vessels

NAUPAR has the largest fleet of ships affiliated with HISWA. With in excess of sixteen different harbours from which we set sail, dotted around the IJsselmeer, Markermeer and on the Wadden Sea (for example), there will always be a harbour near you and your family members. Whatever your choice, with NAUPAR you can rest assured that you’ll have an unforgettable family outing. Your family members will be talking about the trip for years to come.
