The lemsteraak Argonaut was built in 1993 by the famous I Blom shipyard in Hindeloopen, after a design by D Blom. The schip was built under the name „vrouwe cornelia“ and the second owner gave her the name „stoute louise“. The ship has had a major overhaul at WJH Yachtservice in Workum in the winter of 2018 and in 2019 it will be ready, with modern technology and with an interior adapted to the rental, as one of the nicest ships in our rental fleet.

To the front of the yacht there is 2 cabins. One with 2 single beds and one with a double bed and a single bed. In the centre of the yacht there is a second cabin (owners cabin) equipped with a double bed. The two other berths can be found in the saloon on the benches. The Argonaut is equipped with a bow thruster and electrical winches for the leeboards. With a marine radio, depth and speed gauge, a big GPS Plotter and the latest nautical maps on board, the sailing region of Frisian inland waterways, the IJsselmeer and Wadden Sea are all within reach to head off on fabulous sailing trips on this beautiful Lemsteraak sailing yacht.

In the spacious cockpit, you can enjoy both sailing and the surrounding area. The vessel can be steered with a steeringwheel. Below deck, a large saloon and a well-equipped kitchen are conducive to a pleasant stay.

Renting with Skipper - how does it work?

We also offer some of our larger Lemsteraken incl. Skipper. This offer is intended for guests who have little (or no) experience with flat-bottomed sailing, but still want to enjoy the special atmosphere on board these classic yachts.
The hired skipper can easily navigate the ship on his own. Sailing this is a different story. Guests are expected to cooperate in sailing the ship. Experience is not necessary, but a bonus. However, you should take into account that there is less space on board for two guests.

Sailing training

Renting a ship without experience with a flat-bottomed yacht? You can!

At Sailcharter Friesland you learn to have a rented ship under control from the first moment and to sail without stress. This greatly increases the sailing pleasure and prevents unrest on board.

Training is mandatory for new customers on all bookings. With the exception of new customers with proof (eg a flat-bottomed course certificate or contract with another flat-bottomed rental company) of sufficient experience.
