Volharding

 Back in the old days

The Volharding (in English: the Perseverance) is a beautiful one-masted tjalk. The name of the ship wasn’t always the Volharding. In 1902 she was built at the shipyard Barkmeijer and named Twee Gezusters (Two Sisters). The ship has a chequered history til. It was used as a freight ship, warehouse and houseboat.

 

Nowadays

In 1980 the Volharding was converted into a sailing charter vessel and awarded for best restored ship. As of today, redecorations and improvements continue to go on.

 

What stands out?

 The ship is sailed with a traditional tiller. There are no separate huts, but alcoves with bunk beds. Two of the bunk beds can be used by either two or four persons. That is why the number of cabins is variable. Two of the sleeping accommodations are located in the day time area and are opened during the day trip.

Skipper: Marco Harskamp

Meet Marco

“I am the skipper and owner of the Volharding. Every season a new shipmate sails with me. Usually this is a friendly youngster that wants to do something different for a season or is interested in a future in sailing.

The caterers are also not permanent employees. They are recruited from a pool of experienced people that are available for several ships.”
