4.5/5 (4 ratings)   Ratings/reviews for tours sailing on Leafde Fan Fryslân

The Leafde Fan Fryslân is an imposing, three-masted barquentine, managed by its owner/operators, Joris and Rinske de Wit, who bring years of maritime experience.

In 2020, the cabin configurations will change with the addition of a junior suite and a smaller twin cabin. This page has been updated to reflect the 2020 changes.

The ship has 13 well-appointed twin cabins: Ten twin cabins (10 m² – 107 sq.ft.), one smaller twin cabin (9 m² – 96.8 sq.ft), one junior suite (12 m² – 129 sq.ft), all with two separate beds that can be put together to form a double bed, and one single cabin ((7 m² – 75 sq.ft.). A third (bunk) bed can be added in some cabins. All cabins have ventilation and heating and an en-suite bathroom with shower, basin, and toilet. A porthole can be opened in every cabin except the single cabin.

Sumptuous meals are carefully prepared in the restaurant and the ship’s full-service bar is fully stocked. The wheelhouse is equipped with a well-appointed seating area and the best views over the water are available here and on deck.

The atmosphere on board and the itinerary, navigating Lake IJsselmeer and the Frisian Sea, provide a unique bike and sail experience.
