The "Eendracht" is Holland's largest three-masted schooner and was built in 1989 at the Damen shipyard, after a design by Willem de Vries Lentsch. The ship measures nearly 59 meters (194 ft) in length, 12 meters (40 ft) in width and has a depth of 5 meters (16 ft). The Eendracht belongs to
the A-class ships, also known as Tall Ships; the largest sea sailing ships in the world. The Eendracht is built to sail at sea with young and inexperienced people. Therefore safety comes first. There is no need to climb the masts. All sailing action can be done from the deck.
By this anyone can come along and learn how to sail. The home port of the Eendracht is in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
