“Our beautiful classic boats are sailing heritage and I am proud that I can sail them. On board I receive the guests and I love to tell something about the boat and the special places along the Amsterdam canals. Together with a close-knit club of service staff, I ensure that our guests have a richer experience after the cruise.”
