The Sailing Home is built in the early 21th century on the casco of a so called “luxe motor”. This was a cargo vessel which was permitted to the same waters as where the Sailing Home is sailing today. To convert the cargo vessel into a motor passenger ship, the casco was completely stripped. Subsequently, the wheelhouse was placed in front of the ship, as is usually seen on passenger ships. In the back, another construction is realized, and downstairs, the 13 passenger cabins are accomplished.
The Sailing Home possesses a Rhine certificate, what allows the ship to sail on all European inland waterways, including the extensive waterways of the Netherlands, like the waters of Zeeland, the IJsselmeer and the Waddenzee. There is room for 26 overnight passengers, and in some cases, there is room for 50 day passengers.
The foyer is comfortable and tastefully decorated. The interior has a luxurious, modern and warm charisma with a relaxed atmosphere. The comfortable leather armchairs and the bar can provide the necessary relaxation. Furthermore, audio equipment and television are present.
The Sailing Home has 13 spacious 2-person cabins. All the cabins are equipped with two luxury single beds, which can be placed together. Moreover, the cabins have a shower with toilet and sink, heating and air conditioning.
