The Stevenaak Antje was built as a sailing cargo ship in 1875 and is therefore the oldest (or one of the oldest) sailing cargo ships in the country. The type Stevenaak originates from the wooden Dorstense aak which was very popular with the Dutch skippers. With the dimensions 34.75 long and almost 6 meters wide it was for that time a very fast sailor ... and still is.
We have tried as much as possible to preserve the authentic atmosphere of our historic ship.
The Stevenaak Antje has been intensively restored over the past 8 years to a hotel, where all facets of the ship have been tackled in detail. It is really enjoyable on this 19th century ship. There is a breakfast room for 12 persons.
Rig and sails
In recent years, the ship has undergone an enormous restoration from 2012 to 2018. To restore the ship to its original condition, much of the ironwork has been rebuilt and authentically sounded. Also, all the wells, all the fittings, on the masts have been forged by hand. Also the rigging has been traditionally split and tied off with hemp rope and wooden blocks have been made with outside fittings. Furthermore, in addition to new masts, new oak swords, a new deckhouse, an oak rudder, new wooden shutters with wooden markers and shaving beam have been placed.
