Sailing trips across the IJsselmeer, Wadden Sea, Markermeer and beyond...


Our sailing fleet's historical vessels have their home port in Monnickendam's picturesque inner harbour, in the Waterland municipality. From here they make their beautiful sailing trips: they visit the harbour towns on the IJsselmeer and Markermeer, sail across the Wadden Sea and make even longer voyages to faraway destinations. Sail with them and enjoy the wind in your hair!

The skippers and mates of the Monnickendam Sailing Fleet are true outdoorspeople, always outside with the wind in their hair and the sun on their faces. They know their ships, weather conditions and winds, and they will effortlessly lead you through all waters. Their hands, callused from the countless times they've set and lowered their sails, will point out all the sights and landmarks en route. And if you want to do your bit to help sail one of the historical vessels of the Monnickendam Sailing Fleet, you can count on them and their mates to give you clear, expert instructions and keep a watchful eye on all things.
