The Vrouwe (Lady) Gerdina is an ideal ship for people who want to both sail and stay on board with a smaller group of up to 12 people. This tjalk offers the ideal location for a family weekend, a weekend break with friends, a bachelor party or for team building with colleagues. After a long day's sailing, sleep comes easy on this tjalk, with the cozy round seating cabin well suited for telling tall tales into the wee hours. The many windows on the Vrouwe Gerdina ensure that, even below deck, you always remain in contact with the outside world and the water. The ultimate water experience!
Sailing and overnight stays with smaller groups
The tjalk Vrouwe Gerdina, built in 1891, is one of the oldest ships in the Monnickendam Sailing Fleet. In the past she served as a freighter. When Skipper Marco purchased her in 2006, the ship had already been thoroughly renovated. More adjustments have been made to the bargen recently, and it is now equipped with all modern sailing and safety amenities. So there is nothing in the way of an excellent sailing trip. The Vrouwe Gerdina's kitchen is equipped with all basic needs. You and your group can cook for yourselves here. If you want even more atmosphere, it is possible to barbecue on board after dropping anchor.
Marco van der Staaij is the skipper of the Vrouwe Gerdina. Together with his guests, his goal is a real sailing experience, where they can roll up their sleeves but also muse at the stunning views from the ship. At the start of the trip Marco likes to go through the day with his guests, so they can plot a route together. Because the ship is docked in the historical inner harbor of Monnickendam with only a few other vessels, to sail out under the Lange Brug (Long Bridge) is already a special experience.
