Open ship on Sea Tug Holland
June 23, 1-4 p.m.
Sea Tug Holland from 1951 is one of our country's finest classic vessels. The ship holds "open ship" exclusively during Zeehavendagen Amsterdam so you can get to know this gem better.
The "Holland" has about 200 spectacular rescues to her credit. For a while it seemed that this unique - more than 57 meters long - ship would be lost. But the foundation behind the sea tug managed to generate enough funds to keep the Holland afloat. Visitors to Amsterdam Seaport Days are in for a treat.
Seagoing tugboat Holland is unique in several ways. And because she served with Rederij Doeksen as a ferry to Terschelling v.v. (still the home port), your mouth falls open when visiting the saloons of the ship. And then the technology. Downstairs in the engine room, a Werkspoor diesel engine is stepping out of control. There are volunteers on board who can tell you all about the Holland.
Seaport Days Amsterdam offers the public several opportunities to sail on the Holland. That is besides "open ship" also three sailing tours. These can be booked separately through this website. From Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening, the Holland will be at the Port Festival IJmuiden.
Tickets and embarkation.
Open ship on the Holland is free, but you will need a ticket to board.
