We leave Amsterdam, taking flower bulbs for Porto and Essaouira. First we set sail for Cherbourg and the Channel Islands. The Channel Islands are not only known for being a tax haven but also because of their impressive coastline of chalk cliffs and bays.

We sail along the English and French coasts and then past the Spanish and Portuguese coastline. A meaningful trip and so special, it must be experienced at least once.

Journeying through the Channel and past Spanish cities we finally arrive in Portugal at our final destination in Porto, a beautiful old town on the river Douro. This city will make us feel welcome when we go ashore here.


Year of Construction 1957
