Cruise with the Belle van Zuylen

Comfortable, quiet and environmentally friendly

During a recent second rebuild, the diesel engine gave way to a noiseless electric motor. The engine gets its energy from the solar panels on the roof and thus sails 100% emission-free. The same panels also provide power for the heat panels in the ceiling. These ensure that even in the heart of winter it feels like there is sun shining below deck! The Belle van Zuylen sails in Amsterdam, Vecht, Loosdrechtse Plassen and Westeinder Plassen.
