Sailing ship Rode Swan is in the hands of our small team all year round. We are the professional crew during the sailing trips in the sailing season from April to October. In addition, we take care of the maintenance of the ship in the winter. In this way everything stays in order so ou can enjoy your stay without any worries. We live at the back of the ship in the traditional skipper’s house. Small is beautiful!

Thuishaven Harlingen is centrally located on the Wadden Sea. The Wadden Islands and the IJsselmeer can easily be sailed in a day, so you can walk into the new harbor in the afternoon.
Due to its specific construction as a flat-bottomed boat, the Red Swan can deliberately dry up on the sandbanks in the Wadden Sea. This way you can walk on the mudflats from the ship, a unique experience!
Spending the night at anchor under the starry sky is certainly possible and we do it regularly.
