Lemsteraak yacht rental in Friesland

From competition yacht to relaxed bobbing, from 2 to 12 people, basic to extreme luxury. Charter the most beautiful boats in Friesland with us now!

The lemsteraak is a traditional Frisian sailing ship, with deck-house. The design comes from Lemmer, developed from the Frisian visaak (suitable for the Frisian inland waters). The barge was used for transport and storage of fish, which was provided for by a (covered) bun on the front deck, which could be up to 2.5 meters in size. Due to its speed the barge was also used for the transport of other (live) fish, mussel seed to Zeeland and mussels from Zeeland to Belgium (up to Brussels). Before long the well-to-do bourgeoisie realized that the lemsteraak was also perfectly suitable as a pleasure yacht.

Besides Lemsteraak yacht rental, you can also contact us for Vissermanaak yachts and other flat-bottomed yachts. Also take a look at our recommended sailing routes .

Charter with Skipper – how does it work?
We offer a few of our larger Lemsteraak sailing yachts for charter including a skipper. This is intended for guests who have little or no experience with flat-bottomed sailing, but still wish to enjoy the special atmosphere on board these classic yachts. The ‘hired’ skipper is able to navigate alone, using the engine. When sailing, this is a different story. The guests are expected to help to sail the yacht. Experience isn’t necessary, but is helpful! You must bear in mind that there is then space on board for two fewer guests.

Flat-bottomed sailing courses
We also offer optional training courses, to learn the basics of all aspects of flat-bottomed sailing. During the booking process of the ship of your choice you may indicate which course you want to follow.

An ultimate experience...

At Sailcharter Friesland, chartering luxurious flat-bottomed sailing yachts has been our passion for more than 15 years.

Sailing with a Lemsteraak:
according to true sailors, that is the ultimate experience!

Sailcharter Friesland offers a unique and varied charter fleet of 18 traditional flat-bottomed sailing yachts. On-board, enjoy the huge amount of space, the perfect sailing performance and the unique atmosphere of a luxurious Lemsteraak and simply ‘enjoy life’. This is sailing like royalty do; very traditional or combined with the ease of handling a cutter yacht, with the ‘easy sailing’ rigging, that we designed.

Superb flatbottomed boats for for hire, from Workum
Lemsteraak, Visserman, Sea-going Scow or Hoogaars, you can hire all of these sailing yachts from us, which accommodate from 2 to 12 persons. Our harbour of departure is in the middle of the Frisian Lakes region, in Workum. Perfect for trips to the IJsselmeer, the Wadden Sea and, of course, the beautiful Frisian Lakes.

Rental of a vessel with no experience in flat-bottomed sailing? No problem!
Sailing courses, manoeuvring courses and sailing tuition are part of our charter programme.
