Further information about Zephyr:
The 'Zephyr' was built in 1931 as a 'motorgaljas' and christened the 'Bente'. She sailed the Baltic Sea until 1953 and then carried mixed cargo in the Norwegian fjords until 1992. Afterwards, she came into Dutch hands and was extensively rebuilt into a passenger sailing ship.

The beautiful two-masted schooner 'Zephyr' has a cosy, light, luxury saloon, finished in blue and mahogany. The galley is equipped with all conveniences, including a beer tap.

Please note: Showers and bathroom facilities are shared.
