The yacht

This cabin cruiser was built in 1936 at the world-famous shipyard van Lent (now called Feadship) on a little island in the lakes of Amsterdam named Kaag. Between 2007 and 2008 this yacht got a total refit and all historic details were kept in place. The yacht looks very nice and shiny and gets a lot of attention when cruising. Not only the outside but also the mahogany interior is beautiful. This yacht is so well kept that is has the official nomination of historic landmark.

The owner

My grandfather, with the same name as myself Theo Heere ordered the yacht in 1936 to use it for visiting his islands with farms in the Biesbosch. But also to enjoy sailing with his family. This ship called “De Elft” is now in our family for more than 80 yaers.
Because we have a busy schedule and can’t use the ship often we decided to charter our boat. The yacht can be rented with a skipper and host(ess) and she is cruising on the lakes of Amsterdam (Kaag). If desired we can also cruise in other regions such as Amsterdam or Vecht Region.
We are a small shipping company all of our trips are tailormade and we strive to perfection.
We hope you enjoy sailing on our beautiful boat and the culinary surprises.
