The Oosterschelde is the ony remaining representative of an extensive fleet of three-masters that sailed under the Dutch flag at the beginning of the twentieth century. This vessel, with her size, elegance, excellent sailing characteristics and her perfect restoration, commands respect.

The name Oosterschelde is taken from a river called the “Shelde”, that runs from France, through Belgium and the Netherlands before reaching the sea. In the Netherlands the river splits in two, the eastern “ooster” and western parts.

Having undergone many changes through the year, in 1988 the ship was bought and restored to her former glory. The restoration took two years to complete with the co-operation of three maritime museums and much public support.

The Oosterschelde now earns her living as a historical sailing ship, making cruises worldwide and providing a stunning venue for a whole host of activities on board.
