Enjoy a Ducth monumental ship! Since 2012 Lemsteraak ‘Schokland’ has joined our fleet and offers a lot of possibilities for an active and relaxing holiday on the inner lakes of Friesland, the IJsselmeer and on the Wadden Sea.
Set sail to a drying port
The Schokland is located in the harbor of Makkum. From here, you are able to sail directly to the IJsselmeer. Within 1 hour you are sailing on the Wadden Sea, to Harlingen or one of the Wadden Islands. Do you prefer a quiet holiday and beautiful views? Set sail to a drying port and experience a nice walk when the tide is low. You may even spot some seals!
The Schokland is built in 1919 by ‘De Vriesch Lentsch’. Rijkswaterstaat (Dutch water authorities) commissioned the company to build a ship to maintain the connection between the former Zuiderzee island ‘Schokland’ and the mainland. Nowadays, the Lemsteraak is a comfortable ship with all the facilities for a relaxing holiday.
A unique experience on a monumental ship
Do you prefer the inner lakes of Friesland or would you rather set sail to a drying port? The Schokland offers you comfort for a relaxing holiday with a maximum of 7 people on board. The ship has a cozy interior with authentic elements, which are beautifully maintained. Below deck there is a spacious seating area with a nice kitchen. On deck there is enough space to relax.

– Spacious cabin with 5 single beds and 1 double bed with a length of more than 2 meters.
– Spacious salon with large table and seating options
– Kitchen with a 2-burner stove, refrigerator and oven

In addition, the ship has a hot air heating for colder days. And for safety reasons a VHF radio, GPS, maps, navigation devices, distress signals, life jackets, USB charger and a permanent 230 volt battery are on board.
Charter with Skipper – how does it work?
We offer a few of our larger Lemsteraak sailing yachts for charter including a skipper. This is intended for guests who have little or no experience with flat-bottomed sailing, but still wish to enjoy the special atmosphere on board these classic yachts.
The ‘hired’ skipper is able to navigate alone, using the engine. When sailing, this is a different story. The guests are expected to help to sail the yacht. Experience isn’t necessary, but is helpful! You must bear in mind that there is then space on board for two fewer guests.
As from 2018, people hiring yachts will be able to order their shopping here and have this delivered to the harbour (only for yachts in Workum):
Payment is either in advance, alternatively we can pay and then settle with our customers in cash, upon their arrival at the harbour. Shopping will then be delivered to the yacht whilst it is, moored in the harbour, or to the Sail Charter Friesland office.
