The nicer places to stay



Discovery Motor cruiser

Only 1.85 metres above water and suitable for 4 persons, the Discovery Motor Cruiser is the answer to the wish of many watersport lovers who would rather sail over the small rivers than the big canals and love to see sights of historical cities such as Hindeloopen and Harlingen and the National Park in Friesland and Overijssel. But the same lovers would for example also want to go safely over the IJsselmeer, the IJssel and the Wadden Sea with the enjoyment and comfort just like home. This is why the ‘Discovery’ was developed. It offers comfort and the sailing characteristics of a luxury yacht and the possibilities of a sturdy sloop. No bridge is too low for this ship which is based on the classic lines. This is why the Dutch water world is much bigger. You will discover with the Discovery the hidden treasures of the Netherlands.

No sailing license is needed for a boat vacation in Holland
Everyone can book such an amazing sailing vacation as you do not need a sailing license. Sailing with a motorboat is not difficult and the traffic regulations on the water are very simple. You will be informed in advance, so no worries. A friendly and highly skilled instructor will help you the first day. You will get the chance to practice a lot on the yacht. While sailing you will learn all necessary traffic rules. This is a good beginning of your unforgettable holiday on the water.

Thoughtful design
At the design of the Discovery the most important principles were the length which is over 9,00 metres, the exceptional good sailing characteristics, steering outside possibility with the luxury of a standing steering wheel, a big tub with spacious sitting benches and storage room, standing height in the cabin with accommodation options for 4 persons and a crawl height of less than 1,70 metres (minus clearance). The ship has a chine construction on a flat base plate with a wide wedge and sturdy appearance which is accentuated by the RVS-fender and the beautiful sheer in the construction. The appearance of the Discovery is through the flat bottom construction classic and traditional. The boat has because of its big tub and slight crawling height the charm of an open sloop, but offer the comfort and living space of a flat bottom sailing yacht with de same length. The lovely light interior and the cosy division of the cabin make staying in the Discovery very pleasant. The exceptional good sailing characteristics make every tour a great pleasure.

Touring in large sailing areas
Due to its comfortable living area, staying on board of the Discovery is possible which makes it easier to sail long tours. The sailing area stretches itself through all the Dutch inland waterways, the IJsselmeer and the Wad. Due to the flat bottom plate, falling dry when it is low tide, is very easy. The boat has a low crawling height which means that almost all bridges can be taken along the route and sailing areas which are not accessible for other boats are made accessible. 

Spacious comfort cabin with 4 sleeping places*
For the interior – standing height! – a decking is chosen of maple in combination with teak frames. The interior therefore is very light and spacious and gets due to the used teak a luxury appearance. The division of the cabin consist of two long benches with in between a movable ‘hangoortafel’ (hanging table), an efficient designed galley and sanitary room on larboard and a card reading table on the starboard. The Galley and card reading table are foreseen of a plastic blade. There is a three-burner gas stove present for cooking. Cabinets have been made underneath the sink and the sitting benches. The refrigerator can be found underneath the card reading table. Shelves and storage room has been created over the entire length underneath the gangways. The sleeping cabin is situated in the front and offers place for two people. The sitting benches in the cabin can be sued for creating the two other sleeping places. There is storage room underneath the beds. The distinction between cabin and sleeping cabin is formed through the toilet- and showering area on larboard- and a hanging closet on starboard.

*There is a possibility for a fifth person when taking an air mattress and situating this between the two beds. However, you would have to move the table which is situated over there.

Standing steer, tub, swimming platform, storage for folding bikes
The steering position exists of a steering column with a hydraulic steering pomp inside with steering wheel. On top of this column is a control panel with the instruments of the motor (tachometer, hour meter, thermometer and warning lights), the joystick of the thrusters, the rudder indicator and the fuel tank meter. The engine control can be found with a Teleflex one-hand control on the side of the steering column. The tub is over 2,00 x 2,00 metres and offers a lot of space. Due to the cockpit cover in convertible version you have the possibility to sail completely ‘open’ or with a sun roof and you are able to close the tub with bad weather. The swimming platform can be reached via stair brackets on the mirror and is foreseen of a folding swim ladder. In the engine room and the aft is lots of space for two folding bikes so you are also able to discover the surrounding of the moorings.

In the engine room underneath the crawling floor, which is accessible via a large hatch, is a 40 PK strong and silent diesel engine. The three-bladed propeller, the thrusters and the fishtail shaped rudder provide the propulsion of the Discovery, so the boat is agile. The noise level in the tub is exceptionally low due to the very solid construction and optimal engine isolation.

Electrical installation
The board power is supplied by a 12 V battery of 140 Ah that is fed by a dynamo and a 230 V shore installation with rectifier.

Sloop Holiday Guarantee

It does not happen very often that the weather is so bad that it is not save to go out by boat. If it does occur that sailing is not save during the sloop package for one or more days, the participants of the sloop can be taken by the shuttle bus of Friesland Holland:

  1. From the starting location to the first hotel
  2. From one hotel to other
  3. From the last hotel to the finish

In this way the sailors of the sloop can still enjoy their ending destination(s) at bad weather.

When the weather conditions are better, judged by Friesland Holland, the guests will be taken back to the location where the sloop is left behind, or the sloop will be sailed to a location from which the bookers can continue their trip. You can only take out the sloop guarantee insurance at the moment you book the holiday package, at a minimum of three weeks in advance before the sailing trip. This deal cannot be taken in combination with last-minutes. This offered insurance of Friesland Holland Assistance (shuttle service and skipper) costs €195,- per sloop package, booked a minimum of three weeks in advance before the trip starts.

If you have not taken the sloop vacation guarantee, or you booked it too late, and you want to make use of this during your sloop package, you will pay €295,- per day. In fact this is not so expensive as two persons come in action: a private driver and a private skipper.
Get a guarantee or not, when you are in doubt about the safety always contact the Friesland Holland Travel Service: 0031 (0)561 615 364
