Hoge Wier

Daytrip sailing near Amsterdam

Lounge clipper De Hoge Wier, the flagship of Muiden. A more than 100 year old clipper with flair and speed. 'De Hoge Wier' has had a recent thorough refit but it's character and individuality have been preserved. Atmospheric without being corny.

And she's a fast clipper; Skipper Sacha is sailing almost all the sail races on the Markermeer, IJsselmeer and the Wadden Sea. The Hoge Wier sails in the top 3. But with attention to style and comfort. Sailing with cargo is over. Today's guests of the Hoge Wier without exception enjoy the excitement of sailing and the luxurious atmosphere on the ship; Life's a party on board the Hoge Wier.

Exciting fast, wonderfully comfortable, fully equipped to make your day - corporate event, team training, birthday, wedding, family feast, sailing race - a successful event. The experienced crew will make you feel at home and give you a 'smooth sailing'  and meaningful experience for you and your guests. 

The Hoge Wier owes its current name to the sandbank under Ameland, a tribute to a bold skipper who ordered the construction of the ship; who believed firmly in 1899 in the future of fast sailing cargo transport. More than 100 years later, the ship still sails and rapidly, and what do you know,  cargo transport under sail is also back!
