Sail with us!
Experience the nostalgic feeling of traveling with a tall ship. The Morgenster is a fullblood sailing training ship. The many sails with their halliards, sheets and many lines requires great teamwork. The trainees are full members of the crew. They are involved in all aspects of life at sea. The sensation of real sailing with a rigged clipper brik breeds team spirit, promotes smooth cooperation and trains functional leadership. That is why we provide Sea Experience trips for various schools, nautical schools and the Royal Netherlands Navy.

Under the raised front deck, are 4 double cabins. There are 4 four-person cabins in the fore section under the main deck. On deck at the foremost is a deckhouse with a powder room on the port side and a urinal on the starboard side. Furthermore, the Riggersbar is housed here. From this bar we take care of the drinks on day trips. Behind the rear mast is the large deckhouse. Here we find the Coffeeshop
The harness with which the Morgenster sails is that of a clipper-brig. It stems from the American struggle for independence. The heavy English warships stood helplessly against the light fast Americans who applied the "hit and run" tactic. The lightning fast clipper was developed from the fast schooners and brigantines.
