History clipper Alexandra

Clipper Alexandra is a sailing vessel that was built in 1895 at the famous Dutch Duivendijk shipyard in Lekkerkerk. Until the seventies, Alexandra sailed as a freighter and from 1975 until 1990 it was moored alongside the quay as a houseboat. In the year 2011, our guests may expect a very cosy saloon and spacious two-berth cabins with bathroom facilities. We have created a seating area on the large quarterdeck, where you can enjoy the wonderful view!

Steering the ship.... are you up for it?

Of course, you are invited to join in during your trip and actively help sail the ship. Apart from working the sails you will get a chance to take control of the rudder. There’s nothing like steering such a large sailing vessel across the waves. Working the sails all day does create quite an appetite. Clipper Alexandra is equipped with a fully fitted kitchen or galley. This is where you can show off your culinary expertise. Not in the mood for cooking? No worries! can take care of catering for you, also during sailing trips that last several days.
