Vision Doeve Brokers

Well-performing Three-masted topsail schooner charter ship that in the summer months is used on the North Sea and Baltic Sea and can be rented out as a B&B in the winter months, for example. Originally she was a sailing freighter that was completely transformed, after she was decommissioned as a freighter, into a sailing charter ship annex training vessel for a maximum of 36 hotel guests or 86 day passengers. The ship meets all Dutch requirements and the seller is very consistent with preventive maintenance. In total there are 13 guest cabins with their own washbasin and there are 4 showers and 4 toilets and 1 urinal for the guests. There is sufficient space for the crew and in the aft cabin there is a fully equipped galley and a private bathroom. In our view, an excellent opportunity to acquire a beautiful ship with many exploitation possibilities where the possible captain/owner can also live on board very well. This lady is a real beauty to see and has a good turnover that, in our view can be expanded through winter activities.
