Philosophy

Guests come sailing with us because they want to have fun and escape the busy life ashore, this change of environment is often a source of inspiration. This is our main incentive to restore the exterior of the ship in original state which offers a unique opportunity to imagine yourself back in time.

The interior is equipped for a comfortable stay, spacious, well lit and modern. The materials used in the ship are all sustainable and ecological sound, wood used is all FSC wood, cleaning materials are ecological, we reduce usage of energy as far as we can, aided by relatively large batteries and a sustainable engine. Due to our efforts we are rewarded by The Green Key.

The Willem Jacob and her crew aim to be sustainable and run a responsible business while taking our guests to a new level in sailing and leisure.
