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
