The lemsteraak Argonaut was built in 1993 by the famous I Blom shipyard in Hindeloopen, after a design by D Blom. The schip was built under the name „vrouwe cornelia“ and the second owner gave her the name „stoute louise“. The ship has had a major overhaul at WJH Yachtservice in Workum in the winter of 2018 and in 2019 it will be ready, with modern technology and with an interior adapted to the rental, as one of the nicest ships in our rental fleet.
To the front of the yacht there is 2 cabins. One with 2 single beds and one with a double bed and a single bed. In the centre of the yacht there is a second cabin (owners cabin) equipped with a double bed. The two other berths can be found in the saloon on the benches. The Argonaut is equipped with a bow thruster and electrical winches for the leeboards. With a marine radio, depth and speed gauge, a big GPS Plotter and the latest nautical maps on board, the sailing region of Frisian inland waterways, the IJsselmeer and Wadden Sea are all within reach to head off on fabulous sailing trips on this beautiful Lemsteraak sailing yacht.
In the spacious cockpit, you can enjoy both sailing and the surrounding area. The vessel can be steered with a steeringwheel. Below deck, a large saloon and a well-equipped kitchen are conducive to a pleasant stay.
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?
