When you sail with this lemsteraak, you will probably get the question “is it a Blom-aak”? Yes it is! She owes her graceful lines to her designer: I Blom in the city Hindeloopen, one of the most famous shipyards for Lemsteraken ships.
The 11.2 m long ship is not only a fine sailor, she also offers a lot of living space inside and a spacious and cozy cockpit outside.
A wonderful family ship in top condition.
In the front are two cabins with – in each cabin – a spacious double bed. In the saloon, there are two spacious single beds to be created on the saloon sofas. The ship offers a lot of comfort including hot water and ventilation. In addition, it has a lot of storage space so that you are assured of a pleasant stay when you’re a group of 6 persons.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge, 3 burner stove, oven and double sink: a wonderful place to cook together or to make small dishes.
The annual maintenance receives a lot of attention. For example, we have installed new and comfortable mattresses and pillows, the sleeping space in the saloon has been widened and an extra shower has been placed in the cockpit to rinse off after swimming and walking in the mudflats.
The ship is provided with plenty of useful and handy equipment. It has a chartplotter including compass and depth gauge in the steering column. The Dyneema cable steering ensures that you can steer lightly but directly via the steering wheel. The spacious cockpit makes the sheets, valuables and backstays easily accessible.
It also has rig winches and the mainsail is equipped for easy sailing. You can hoist the mainsail directly from the lazy jacks with the claw trap, but you can still trim with the peak trap. All in all it is a pleasure to trim this ship, perfect for a beautiful sailing experience.
With a draught of only 90 cm, the ship is ideal for drying out on the UNESCO Wadden sea mudflats, but also for the Frisian inland waterways. This ship can also be sailed without a license, but some experience is required.
Payment is either in advance, alternatively we can pay and then settle with our customers in cash, upon their arrival at the harbour. Shopping will then be delivered to the yacht whilst it is, moored in the harbour, or to the Sail Charter Friesland office.
Some of our larger Lemsteraken we also offer including Skipper. This offer is meant for guests who have little (or no) experience with flat bottom sailing but still want to enjoy the special atmosphere aboard these classic yachts.
The hired skipper can handle the ship on the engine alone. Sailing this is another story. The guests are expected to cooperate in sailing the ship. Experience is not necessary, but is a bonus.
Do you want to sail yourself or sail with a skipper?
We also offer some of our larger Lemsteraken sailing yachts for sailing trips with a Skipper. This offer is intended for guests who have little (or no) experience with flat-bottomed sailing, but still want to enjoy the special atmosphere on board these classic sailing yachts. Rental of a vessel with no experience in flat-bottomed sailing? No problem! Sailing courses, maneuvring courses and sailing tuition are part of our charter programme.
