The Twee Gebroeders was built in 1900 in Deest aan de Waal. Nowadays it sails as a passengership on the IJsselmeer and the Waddenzee. The ship is rented with captain and mate, that's why it is not necessary that you already know the sailing-technics. Guests naturally can help with all sorts of things if they wish to do so. All sails are still operated by hand, that's why sometimes a little bit of help will be appreciated. It is also handy if some assistance is given on the longer journeys with, for example, tacking, steering and the navigation.
The ship complies to all inspection requirements and has three stars on a scale of five.
Interior Nowadays, the formal cargo space of the Twee Gebroeders is equiped as a comfortable passenger accommodation with lots of daylight and windows. It has a complete equiped kitchen with a large cooker, an oven and a beertap. Furtermore, it has a cosy sitting area with a radio/cd-player and a woodstove with pleasant seats. On deck there is enough space to sit quietly. You can relax on couches and there is also enough space on the wooden hatch hood where one can enjoy the sun and view over the space of the water.
Sailing area The Twee Gebroeders sails a.o. on the Markermeer, the IJsselmeer, the Waddenzee and the Frisian lakes. The ship is not approved to sail on the Northsea or further. Depending on the wind, from the port of Muiden one of the following villages may be reached in one day: Hoorn, Enkhuizen, Edam, Monnickendan, Volendam, Amsterdam, Lelystad or Marken. In two days it may be able to reach Medemblik, Urk, Kampen, the Afsluitdijk or the Frisian coast.
