Overview

Passaat is a schooner built in 1911 & 100ft long. If it is for a days sail, sunset or dinner cruise, she provides the perfect sailing experience. Join us for a cruise along the St.Maarten coast. We have no music aboard except for the wind in the sails & water against the hull. Relax & enjoy sailing, gourmet Caribbean food & cocktails in great company.
