Bree Sant

The Bree Sant is an impressive traditional sailing vessel with a classic, authentic silhouette measuring over 32 metres long and 6 metres wide. With a sailing area of 400 square metres, which can be extended to 700 square metres during races, this flat-bottomed ship offers an unforgettable sailing experience. Built in 1905 at shipyard Kalkman in Kralingse Veer under the smoke of Rotterdam, the ship started life as ‘Cathalina’. Later it was named ‘Adriana’, and today it is known as ‘Bree Sant’, named after an ancient sandbank in the Zuiderzee and Waddenzee on which the Afsluitdijk is now built.

Downstairs, you enter a beautifully furnished saloon and a spacious open kitchen, separated by a cosy bar. The mahogany panelling has a nautical atmosphere, making you feel like you’re on board a classic yacht. Here you will also find the cabins, sanitary facilities and storage areas. The entire ship is equipped with central heating for colder periods. The cabins are equipped with hot and cold running water, 220-volt sockets, clothes hooks and a locker. Beds are 2 metres long, and some beds even have extra legroom.

The sails are easy to operate, so you can sail even with a small crew. On deck, there is plenty of space and a large sitting area where everyone can find a spot. The wooden masts and round timbers, together with the many teak on deck, give the Bree Sant a special look.
