An elegant old lady from 1903
Completely modernized and still original – preserved as Dutch heritage
Vessel with a soul
In the past, the Poseidon was a cargo ship, built according to Dutch naval architecture.
Although the cargo has changed in the meantime, the ship has always kept her own soul and charisma.
A second life
Nowadays, the ship, completely modernized, sails with guests on the Dutch waters.
The Poseidon feels especially at home between the sandbanks and on the Wadden Sea.
In good condition under great care
We maintain and care for the ship with great care

Who is the crew ?
Nico Goeres and Alida Beekhuizen: Trustworthy and experienced
Since 2018 we, Nico and Alida are the proud owners of the beautiful clipper Poseidon.
With a lot of enthusiasm and passion we sail with this beautiful lady over the Wadden Sea and Ijsselmeer. We enjoy seeing our guests leave the boat with a smile on their faces after an eventful sailing trip together. Since we met, we have been sailing together. First as a couple and then with our three children as a family.
We welcome you on board!
