MS Gandalf

On this very beloved tour sails the small and comfortable passenger barge MS GANDALF for max. 22 guests. On board of this cosy ship are a total of 10 cabins (ca. 8 m²) with shower + toilet, all with 2 low beds and central heating; All cabins windows can be opened. The salon is a large room for common use and is your restaurant area as well. On the two sun decks of the approx. 45 meter long ship are sitting areas with tables + chairs and storage room for the bikes.

Equipped with a double-roof of solar panels, it runs for a great part on green energy! This is not only environment- friendly, but also comfortable for guests: since the ship hardly needs to use a generator to produce electricity, the nights are still and quiet on board. The popular ship sails under Dutch flag and has been sailing in Holland, and Belgium for many years. Skipper Hans Petrus and his experienced crew offer you an exceptional vacation aboard!
