All about the Nile

Beautiful classic ship from 1894
Equipped with all modern conveniences
A dream place for your wonderful holiday
The Nil Desperandum (lat. Do not despair), today a stately 3-masted schooner, was launched in 1894 at Van Duijvendijk in Papendrecht as a two-masted clipper. The ship was then built as a freighter under sail, without engine, to sail the Rhine, the Meuse and the Zuiderzee, among others. She transported potatoes, sugar, beets, manure and peat. She did this until about 1950.

Then the ship was sold and the new owner removed the sail rigging and installed the first engine, a GM 110 hp engine. After a few years the ship was sold again and another engine was fitted, a DAF 1160 turbo with 250 hp, which is still there today. In 1992, the ship was sold again and rebuilt into a luxurious and comfortable charter ship at the shipyard De Ommekeer in Bolsward. At that time the ship also received its current name.
