Built for sailing cargo, this two masted clipper saw it's first daylight in 1917. In 1972, Sietse Dijkstra discovered this sturdy ship and brought it to light. Then the ship was rebuilt and the clipper became a passengers ship. This makes ‘Dy Abt Fan Starum' one of the oldest charter ships. The ship is restored with love and respect for the ship's history, without compromising comfort for its guests. When the ship ‘Dy Abt Fan Starum' is fully rigged it is impressive and it gets clear how solid this ship actually is. The rigging is designed in a way that both small and bigger groups can handle the sails. Below decks we find plenty of room to stay and there is an open galley. This ship ‘Dy Abt Fan Starum' also offers a lot of privacy. Its authentic appearances and the experienced crew will make your stay very special.

We sailed with our schoolclass in 2013 on "dy abt". There was sun and wind. Aside from sailing the vessel as a real team, there also was room for some swimming and relaxing.
As a birthdayparty we sailed with this ship over the mud flats of the Waddenzee. The sailing was very nice. The catering was well served and tasty!
Wow, the real deal! Cool to team up to sail as fast as possible. I even got to steer a bit, totaly got the "Ben Ainslie"-feeling! Although not that fast...
We choose not to rent another cabin in some familypark. What's better than to roam the mud-flats? The crew actively involved the family while sailing. It was fun and sometimes hard work!
