In 1938 the national association Het Zeilend Schoolschip (later Het Zeilend Zeeschip) was established with the aim of promoting Sail Training on large ships amongst Dutch youth. They've built their first ship in 1974; the two-masted schooner Eendracht (which is Dutch for 'unity'). But within 15 years the enthusiasm grew so big that the 15 bunks on board were no longer enough! In 1989 the association built a much larger, three-masted schooner at Damen Shipyards, and in memory of the first ship, named it Eendracht as well. The current ship has been sailing ever since!
Adventure, action and fun await on board of the largest three masted-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 every step of the way.
During the year the Eendracht also sails with schools and Exchange@sea trainees, as well as making 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 watches.
