Ship Type: Expedition Cruise Ship

S/V ‘Rembrandt Van Rijn’ was built as a herring lugger early last century. The vessel was rebuilt as a three-mast passenger sailing schooner in the Netherlands in 1994 and sailed various regions of the globe since then. The vessel underwent a complete rebuilding and refurbishment program which was completed 2011. The communication and navigation equipment has been completely renewed according to the latest SOLAS regulations.

The ship is well suited for expedition cruising among small islands and offers good open deck viewing areas, also when under sail. The 2 inflatable rubber crafts (zodiacs) enable landing and wildlife viewing opportunities in otherwise inaccessible areas.

Life aboard the Rembrandt van Rijn:
The crew of the ´Rembrandt van Rijn´ consists of 7 experienced crew and 2 tour guides and a cook. The sailors are in charge during sailing and will bring guests ashore. Whilst sailing the assistance of the passengers is appreciated for handling the sails and taking the helm. This includes being on watch during nightly sailing.

Expeditions aboard the Rembrandt van Rijn attract independent-minded travelers from around the world. They are characterized by a strong interest in exploring remote regions. The camaraderie and spirit that develops aboard is an important part of the expedition experience.

Common areas:
The general interior public areas include a spacious restaurant area so that all meals can be taken together as well as separate bar area and reading table area. There is room to relax, read and socialize. Three meals of international cuisine per day are served buffet style in the restaurant and is prepared by the cook. The vessel furthermore consists of a separate bar including a reading table.

Cabin Arrangements:
The ship can accommodate a maximum of 33 passengers in 16 cabins in the following cabin types: one Triple Private cabin with porthole, shower and toilet, six Twin Private Inside cabins with shower, toilet and no porthole, and nine Twin Private cabins with shower, toilet and porthole.

The electrical supply aboard the ship is 220 volt 50hz. Electrical outlets are standard European with two thick round pins. U.S. passengers may need a 220v/110v converter.

Ice class:
The s/v Rembrandt van Rijn has no ice class. During her refit, the bow of the vessel was enforced and is therefore suitable to sail in the polar waters.
