About this ship: Leafde fan Fryslân

The sailing ship Leafde fan Fryslân made its maiden voyage for Sail & Bike tours in spring 2018 and is managed by its owner-operators, Joris and Rinske de Wit. In winter 2023-’24, in a quite unique operation, the large sailing vessel was cut into two pieces and extended by a new section of 14 meters (approx. 46 ft.). Also, an additional fourth mast was installed. This will make the Leafde Fan Fryslân the only four-masted-schooner in Dutch waters. The interior of this luxury ship can best be described as refined. The Leafde Fan Fryslân will run Sail and Bike Tours in Tulip season (guided) and on the “Frisian” Wadden Sea (non-guided).
