HVAL

Take a pleasant cruise on the HVAL

This comfortable Noordkaper will take you to the most beautiful places on the IJsselmeer. The rugged sailing ship HVAL offers ample space above decks for an enjoyable cruise: outside on the benches in the spacious cockpit and indoors in the light steering house, where you can relax on the large corner couch. There is also plenty of space below decks for a pleasant stay. Wonderful if the weather is less clement or if you want to enjoy your fantastic day on the water a little longer. Have fun cooking, chatting and relaxing. The galley of the HVAL is fitted with every convenience and looks surprisingly large for the amount of space that it requires. You can cook the tastiest meals there while you chat with your travelling companions who have taken a seat on the couch in the saloon. It has a modest on-board library, an audio installation and a flat-screen television.

Staying overnight on board the HVAL

You sleep in attractive cabins. There are three cabins forward, each with a bunk bed, and more towards the aft – opposite the saloon – there is another cabin with a double bed. This means that the HVAL offers sleeping accommodation for eight people. Every cabin is fitted with sufficient cupboard space, heating, lighting and 220 Volt connections for small electrical devices. The sanitary facilities, including a toilet and urinal, are located near the bow.

Origin

The HVAL is a sailing ship of more than ninety metres in length, with two masts of the Noordkaper type. This ship is named after a species of whale – the Eubalaenae, otherwise known as Right Whales. A whale is a HVAL in Norwegian. The fact that the ship also has a whale-like shape means that this is a very appropriate name.
