SV Elizabeth

Ship description

The Elizabeth is an impressive three-masted clipper, built in 1913. After conversion to a passenger sailing ship, the ship has an upscale interior, but has lost none of the charm of a typical Dutch flat-bottomed ship. She has a cozy salon, restaurant area and bar with Wi-Fi. On the beautiful sun deck with tables and benches the guests can relax and enjoy the views.

Lenght: 41 m
Breadth: 7 m
Sail area: 445 qm
Guests: 20-32 in 10 cabins
Crew: 4


The SV Elizabeth offers ten two-person cabins of 6 m² each with two single berths, which were completely renovated a few years ago. Two cabins on the upper deck, eight on the lower deck. Some of the cabins have bunk beds and can be booked as 3- or 4-bed cabins. All cabins have heating, shower, toilet, sink and a window that can be opened.
