The Mare fan Fryslȃn was built in 1960 as a freight ship and was then completely renovated in 2006 and has been used since 2007 as a beautiful, three-masted schooner on Dutch waters. Facilities: On the lower deck there is a saloon with wooden panelling (air-conditioned), also used as the restaurant. Next to the saloon one can find the wheelhouse fitted with bar, music and video equipment. This room is fitted with a large, panoramic window that offers a nice view over the water. On the lower deck there are 12 comfortable 2-bed cabins (floor area of about 10 m², 2 floor-level single beds 90 x 200 cm), 1 Premium 2-bed cabin with a small corner sitting area and a flat screen TV (about 12 m²) as well as a 1-bed cabin with bunk beds (floor area of about 7 m²). In all the 2-bed cabins and the Premium 2-bed it is also possible to arrange to have 3 beds – a Pullman bed/fold-down bed. All cabins have a private shower/WC/sink and ventilation system and at least one porthole which can be opened. The wooden upper deck offers adequate seating, an outdoor bar with a draught beer tap and a grill and even a Jacuzzi. The sails can be operated either by hand or electrically. In the harbours there is a WiFi/WLAN connection (free of charge) available throughout the whole ship but with limited data volume.
