The national association Het Zeilend Schoolschip was brought into life in 1938 to promote Sail Training on large ships amongst Dutch youth. In 1973 it was renamed into Het Zeilend Zeeschip. In 1974 the first ship was built to carry out the sail training side of the associations work; the two-mast schooner the Eendracht. But within 15 years the enthusiasm grew so big that the 15 bunks on board were no longer enough! A larger, three-masted schooner was built at Damen Shipyards and in memory of the first ship it was named Eendracht. This vessel was put into service in 1989 and sails as a training vessel ever since.
Adventure, action and fun on the largest three mast-schooner of the Netherlands. The Eendracht’s focus is especially on youngsters, but anybody is welcome to sail along! Whatever you choose, you’re always contributing to a good cause. The Ship has been in service since 1989 and participates in the Tall Ships’ Races almost every year! It is not necessary to have any sailing experience as the partly voluntary crew guides you along the line.
During the year the Eendacht also sails several daytrips on the North Sea and makes adventurous voyages in various regions, such as: the Baltic Sea, Canary Islands and the Tropical Caribbean.
Comfortable and with all modern conveniences, that's what the Eendracht is like. The eight two-person cabins and the six four-person cabins are equipped with a washbasin with cold and warm water and private closet. Showers (10) and Lavatories (11) are communal. Dinner is served in the spacious dayroom, where there is also enough room to relax in between the action.
