Zeilschip Eye of the Wind

 The 100 year old Brig Eye of the Wind is one of the oldest and one of the most traditional ships in the International fleet. After finishing building the ship in 1911 it was used as a sailing cargo vessel in Denmark. In the year 2000 the ship was fully restored. During the summer months the Eye of the Wind sails around the North coast of Europe and you will find the ship at every North European maritime festival.

Dag tochttot 12 passagiers
Avond tochttot 12 passagiers
Cruisetot 12 passagiers
Furthermore it is possible to do cruises over a few days. During the winter months the Eye of the Wind offers cruises in warmer areas, for example in the Caribbean.

The complete interior is very comfortable and maritime themed, with the whole deck made from teak wood. The classic facilities grant the ship the traditional seafaring charm. The interior and the exterior shine with tropical wood and brass.
Equipped with the latest navigation equipment and a very powerful engine the Eye of the Wind makes a very good balance between the modern and the traditional seafaring.
