The Jacobsschelp (“Scallop”) is proverbial for holiday making on Dutch waters. Charming, cosy, no draught to speak of and it’s mast is lowered in minutes. So it can take you to shallow waters and past many – even fixed bridges. If you bring a couple of friends or relatives and take your time, you can have the time of your life. The Jacobsschelp and it’s skipper can take you everywhere; from close to Amsterdam, where she has her berth, to the Waddensea and it’s islands Texel, Vlieland, Terschelling, Ameland, Schiermonnikoog. Via the large inland lake IJsselmeer that once was (Zuider) sea, with it’s many historic towns that reflect Holland’s wealth. Or explore the river Vecht, lined with beautiful mansions. More into quietness and nature? Sail the Randmeren. The Jacobsschelp offers accommodation for six guests and a dog.
