Gulden Belofte

 A dream come true: a luxurious sailing ship to show people nature and let them enjoy the freedom of the wind. That describes the Gulden Belofte (in English: Golden Promise), a comfortable clipper that was built in 1911 and sails surprisingly well. The interior is designed in a way that guests can enter the sanitary facilities from every cabin. you can enter the shower and toilet from each cabin. Particularly convenient. The professional kitchen is equiped with luxurious appliances and a cosy bar with beer tap.


Relax and enjoy

Step out of the hectic normal life, actively sail or relax on the ‘fat boys’ on deck whilst enjoying the sun, see, wind, food and drinks. In short: be completely away. A unique aspect of the Gulden belofte is the spacious sitting area, where the complete group can sit and relax during the sailing trip or in the harbour.



The atmospheric space is very suitable for meetings, trainings or simply to relax with friends or relatives after a day of sailing.
