MD3

This sturdy, seaworthy ship was designed in 1883 for the navy. The 'MD3' was used by the torpedo corps for laying mines and pilot and rescue services at sea. Subsequently, the ship was used for fishing in the Zeeland waterways from 1923 till 1970. The wide, shallow hull shape with its huge stem beam and at least one-hundred-year-old mast make the 'MD3' a unique ship. Below deck as well, the ship exudes in all her simplicity an old-time ambience.

The 'MD3' is a ship with character, where originality, safety and atmosphere come before luxury. Roving on the Frisian Sea, beaching the ship on tidal mudflats, night sailing, pottering about little inlets, smoking fish you catch and casting anchor.... There is a surprising variety of options that can be arranged with the skilled and enthusiastic crew, and you will really imagine yourself to be sailing in the days of yore.
