Explore the IJsselmeer and te Wadden Sea on a Lemsteraak
The lemsteraak is a traditional Frisian sailing ship, with deck-house. The design comes from Lemmer, developed from the Frisian visaak (suitable for the Frisian inland waters). The barge was used for transport and storage of fish, which was provided for by a (covered) bun on the front deck, which could be up to 2.5 meters in size. Due to its speed the barge was also used for the transport of other (live) fish, mussel seed to Zeeland and mussels from Zeeland to Belgium (up to Brussels). Before long the well-to-do bourgeoisie realized that the lemsteraak was also perfectly suitable as a pleasure yacht.
