Meridiaan

The clipper Meridiaan is a much-loved boat with excellent sailing characteristics. The boat was launched in 1903 and served as a freighter until 1982. It is now a 2-masted sailing boat once again, as per the original rigging design. There is a large saloon on deck, which makes it a pleasant place to pass the time. The prettily crafted living area offers ample space for guests.

Wheelchairs 

Our ship is accessible for wheelchairs max. 60 cm width. For the use of showers and toilets, it is important that you are able to stand up for a short moment.

The sanitation was modernised in 2004 to comply with current standards. Skipper Ruud Stam is an excellent host, known for his creative, fun activities for young and old along the way. Child-friendliness is a priority aboard the Meridiaan. The railing is constructed in a way that ensures optimal safety. Children's life vests are always available. A stair lift makes the boat accessible for those who may be less steady on their feet.
