Sail the largest
sailing ship of the Netherlands together! The Eendracht (in English: the
Harmony) is part of a foundation with idealistic goals. The Eendracht organizes
special sailing trips, internships and trips for training and education
purposes. Letting youngsters experience sailing at sea is the point of focus for
this largest three masted schooner. Also, the Eendracht organizes special
projects and trips for those who almost fall by the wayside. Sailing makes
strong and connects, that’s the philosophy.
The good cause
Companies and groups can rent this ship for a private trip or event. Because of this ‘commercial’ events, the Eendracht can keep working on her mission. By organising your event on the Eendracht, you contribute to a good cause!
A destination of your choise, guided by a professional and mostly voluntary crew and delicious meals from the galley are the ingredients for an unforgettable trip with this impressive ship. Departing from home port Rotterdam, the Eendracht is available for an (evening)trip across the Nieuwe Waterweg, or for longer trips at sea. You will notice she sails smoothly. It’s customary that you assist with the duties on deck. Stimulation, cooperation, discipline, team spirit and endurance, Eendracht!

sailors are maritime professionals, that voluntarily take charge of the
Eendracht for several weeks. The boatswain is a regular, professional
staff member and has a central position between the leaders and the trainees.
Non commissioned officers/supply officers are mostly students with lots of
sailing experience and maritime knowledge.
