Experience an unforgettable time on the water with two-masted clipper Avondrood. Let the wind blow through your hair and enjoy a relaxing and active sailing trip with friends, family, colleagues, your school class or anyone else. From the old Hanseatic town of Kampen, you will make the most beautiful trips across the IJsselmeer and the Markermeer. Or go to the unique Wadden Sea and experience how special it is to fall dry with your ship. Go mudflat hiking and discover the seals sunbathing on a sandbank. There is enough to do!

All the space you need
Because of the two masts, the ship is easy to sail and it is also an experience for an inexperienced sailor to sail the ship on the right course together with the expert crew. There is room for 50 day guests on board; for trips lasting several days you have 30 beds at your disposal, divided over 10 cabins.

Warm welcome
Built in 1900, the Avondrood, like many other charter ships, used to be a sailing cargo ship. In 1987, the ship was thoroughly rebuilt and the cargo hold transformed into a cosy day room with a lot of wood and copper and comfortable cabins, ready to give her guests an unforgettable experience on the water.


Skipper: Rob Peetoom

Rob Peetoom, proud owner of the Avondrood has been a skipper in the charter trade since 1998. First on a smaller tjalk and since 2008 on this sturdy two-mast clipper Avondrood. "I have been sailing and surfing since I was 10 years old and have never been able to leave the water since. For me, there is nothing better than going on an adventure with the ship and sharing it with my guests on board. That never gets boring!

Rob likes to take his guests to special places along the IJsselmeer and the Wadden Sea: cosy harbours, beautiful nature reserves and small, quiet beaches for swimming or canoeing. But also the inland waterways are favourite, such as the IJssel and the Zwarte Meer. Rob is happy to introduce your group to, for example, Blokzijl: "the most beautiful town in the Netherlands, just like Amsterdam in miniature".
