A Hoogaars is a traditional Dutch sailing vessel that was originally used for fishing and freight transport in the shallow waters of the Zuiderzee and the Waddenzee in the Netherlands. It is a flat-bottomed boat with a round bow and stern, characteristic of the shipbuilding industry in that area.

The Hoogaars has a simple but effective design. The ship is equipped with one or two masts and a gaff rigging, making sailing flexible and easy. The hull is usually made of wood and has a flat bottom, which provides stability and the ability to navigate shallow waters.

Today, the Hoogaars is mainly used as a pleasure craft. The classic design, combined with the sailing characteristics and nostalgic appearance, makes it a popular ship among sailing enthusiasts. Many Hoogaarsen are carefully maintained and restored to preserve their historical value.

The Hoogaars is an important part of Dutch maritime history and represents the rich traditions of fishing and shipbuilding. It remains an iconic symbol of craftsmanship and the connection of the Netherlands with the sea.
