Not to be mistaken for the legendary ghost ship The Flying Dutchman that can never make port, doomed to sail the oceans forever within nautical folklore; The Flying Dutchman today is a renamed tall-ship schooner built in 1903 with the original name of “KW33”.

Built originally as a herring drifter in Amsterdam, the ship carried out many years of voyages before being restored in 2003, converted to a luxury charter vessel and re-named The Flying Dutchman.
