Your stay at the Vrouw Dina
The De Vrouw Dina is a characteristic sea tjalk which is excellently suited for adventurous sailing trips on the Wadden Sea and the IJsselmeer.
During the trip you can use the attractive deckhouse with the parlour seamlessly merging into the spacious cockpit. This way, you are also involved in the sailing in poor weather, enjoying the view and the beautiful skies.
Minimum group size on the De Vrouw Dina is 6 adults. If the group does not wish to assist in sailing please let us know upon booking. In that case, we take an additional sailor so we can also travel under sail with a lower number of active participants. The costs for this are provided on request.
Sailing on the De Vrouw Dina
Home port of the De Vrouw Dina during the season is Enkhuizen. From here, you reach the Wadden Sea in a short time. Even in weekends we can sail to Texel if the weather permits.
For longer trips there are many options, including a route along several Wadden islands. Or on IJsselmeer along several picturesque coastal towns. Such as Edam, Medemblik, Workum, Hindeloopen and Urk.
Sailing on the De Vrouw Dina means an active stay on board. But enough time remains for lounging on deck and enjoying tranquillity and space during sailing, the sound of splashing water along the hull, the wind rustling in the sails. And what is more unique than seeing the sun rise above the water in the morning, enjoying a cup of coffee. Or seeing the sun slowly sink into the water in the evening during a good conversation.
On board of the De Vrouw Dina you will collect priceless memories!
Steps take you down to a light and spacious parlour. There is a table with benches on either side of the room. The layout is flexible; if you wish to have a different arrangement, no problem. The De Vrouw Dina has a modern and fully equipped kitchen with four-burner stove, an oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. The ship has central heating.
The ship has six double cabins, each with its own shower and toilet. Upon arrival on board the beds have been made and towels are provided.
Thanks to the flexible layout of the parlour, the cabins with their own shower and toilet and the high railing, the De Vrouw Dina is excellently suited for sailing trips with companies, families and friends. We will also gladly organise your catering, ask for the options!
Facilities on the Vrouw Dina
The keel of the sea tjalk De Vrouw Dina was laid in 1897. From childhood its skipper, Simi Koornstra, spent her holidays and weekends on board of this ship, which was then called ‘De Onrust’. In 2003 the ship was found in a dilapidated state, and subsequently renovated for a number of years to its current state with joint efforts. From 2009 onward, the ship has sailed with guests again.
