Over the years, Oosterschelde has become a firm favourite for sea-lovers and she is perfect for those wanting an active sailing holiday while exploring bucket list locations on a beautifully historic tall ship.

You really don’t need any experience to sail with Oosterschelde, just a lust for adventure. The professional crew love to share their knowledge and they welcome as much or as little participation as guests want, often finding that most love to have some level of involvement with sailing the ship from hoisting the sails to taking the helm.

With a hull length of over 50m, three masts and nine cabins able to sleep 24 guests, the size and scale of Oosterschelde will be one of the first things to realise as you climb aboard for the very first time. Space is something of which there is plenty, from twin to four berth private cabins and five bathrooms to choose from, the sleeping quarters feel more like a floating hotel than a boat. All cabins are fitted with a washbasin with hot and cold running water.

The communal areas are furnished comfortably and supplied with all modern conveniences. In the spacious and stylishly appointed saloon, there are reading tables, seating areas, a library, a fully stocked bar and even a piano. With underfloor heating and wood-burning stove, even in colder climates, Oosterschelde ensures her guests are always cosy and warm. The saloon is also where the captain or first mate will inform you of the voyage progress and the weather report on a daily basis.

Life on board is enhanced by the good meals prepared by our appointed professional chef. All food will be freshly-prepared onboard to the highest standard. Expect continental breakfasts, freshly baked bread, delicious lunches and dinners making use of the local produce on offer. All dietary requirements can be catered for and you’ll certainly be well taken care of after a day of sailing.
