Dear Mariëlle and Jan Willem,
When my partner picked up your brochure in Hoorn at your boot I had had 3 days to decide if I join him at a trip through the Inner Herbrides. I never regret this decision it was a great week at your Steady. The accomodatin, the boot in a very good condition, the meals, the sailing and the islands and of course you made this week unforgatabel. Many thanks for this outstanding week, I will never forget this.
In April 2018 we have been visiting Hoorn, the home of the Steady. What a beautiful looking yacht inviting us for a sailing holiday.
Mariëlle was on board and painting to keep the boat in best condition. After a chat we got some more information about the “Steady”.
The following year we have booked our trip and started in July 2018 from Oban to explore many of the stunning places and islands in Scotland.
Jan-Willem (the Skipper) and Mariëlle have been working hard to give us the best value of our trip. Mariëlle’s cooking was outstanding, you could taste that the food has been prepared with love.
The crew is highly professional, kind and very sympathetic.
Many thanks to both of you, we have enjoyed every moment …
There is nothing better than to smell the see, feel the wind, watch the clouds and “YES”respect the power of the nature … it makes you feeling better …
Hi Marielle, Jan

Sailing in Scotland
Join Jan-Willem and Mariëlle Kerkmeer aboard their 1993 Dutch ketch as they sail the sea of Scotland.
Since she was built, Steady has been used as a charter vessel, so is fully kitted out with her guests comfort in mind. She sleeps eight guests in four comfortable twin cabins, with shared bathroom and loo and a spacious living area below deck.
There’s plenty of room on deck too to take in the surrounding views and if the weather should turn, Steady has Musto sailing suits available for her guests.
Mariëlle & Jan-Willem also make full use of the well-equipped kitchen, making varied meals for all the guests onboard – these are all included in the price of your voyage.
On a sailing holiday around the islands of Scotland
Onboard Steady, most guests like to lend a hand with the sailing of this eye-catching vessel, and Jan-Willem and Mariëlle are excellent teachers if you do want to get involved. They will cater for all abilities, so if you’d rather sit back and relax with a book, then that’s fine too!
Steady’s voyages explore the islands of the Inner and Outer Hebrides; an area of unspoilt wilderness and breathtaking beauty in the Western Isles of Scotland. Her trips give you access to the most captivating and remote hidden secrets of this incredible and beautiful place. As you cruise through this stunning marine landscape you will likely be lucky enough to experience close encounters with rare wildlife and have time to soak up the unique and fascinating history and culture of the Hebrides.
