Two-masted sailing clipper Vrijheid
The two-masted sailing Clipper Vrijheid is a real lounge clipper. Comfort and relaxation are two key elements; they can be perfectly combined with a sporty sailing trip. The ship differs from most traditional, historical sailing ships in the fleet. This two-master's name and its lounge-ship approach promise a carefree and relaxed day on the water.
The lounge-clipper was used as a freighter until 1985. Then it was converted into a passenger ship; owner Remco Voorneveld created a high-end, luxury decor. The ship may be authentic, but the interior is hip and trendy, using modern furniture and nice big sofas and cushions for ultimate chilling.
The ship has a nice seating area with seats all around, and the middle deck is a wonderful place to enjoy the trip and relax on an XL beanbag. Below deck, the ship has a large open kitchen with a cooker, two refrigerators and a dishwasher. The cozy seats around the stove are especially attractive on colder days. The forecastle has four cabins, with good beds and duvets. There are two 4-person cabins, and one 7-person cabin. Two extra beds can easily be added. Each cabin has hot and cold running water, and a shower and toilet are also on board. For presentations, a flat screen TV and flip chart are available. The Vrijheid is a sportive ship, and regularly competes in regattas. Her versatility ensures sufficient variety, from competitive to relaxed sailing.
Remco owns the lounge clipper Vrijheid; he bought the ship in 2009. After that the entire ship was completely restyled to his liking, and thus the trendy, lounge-y look that he had in mind came to be. Remco also owns the two master Umoja, so skipper Leonard Boddeus is usually at the helm of the Vrijheid.
