Iris was built in 1916 and is a fine example of the last generation of sailing luggers. In 1929 she received her first engine and was converted into a commercial trading vessel, then based in Denmark she sailed for 40 years on the Baltic Sea.

Restored to her former glory in 1981and she now sails under the Dutch flag for the second time in her life. From her homeport of Rotterdam Iris cruises all over NW Europe offering sailing holidays, day sails, corporate events and is a regular at the major maritime festivals.

The traditional appearance and historical importance of the ship are perfectly balanced with the modern demands of comfort and safety. Iris is a fast, comfortable ship providing great entertainment on the water.
