In December 2004, skipper Ab bought the Nil Desperandum. After having worked as a paid-skipper for several years, he decided to jump into the deep end of the pool and start on his own.
Ab is well known throughout the fleet as a skipper who likes to create the optimal atmosphere for his guests. During his round, as he is checking the rigging, he often takes out time to chat with guests. More often as not, the guitar will make an appearance in his hands, and people in the know will tell you straight away: Ab is in town. In the roll-down menu, under ‘Extra’ you can get a taste of your skipper’s musical escapades.
Overdag en ‘s avonds
Together with his master (or first mate), Ab will take you to all the beautiful spots around the ‘IJsselmeer’ and the Dutch Wadden. His long years of experience guarantee many a sailor’s tale (tall or not). Join him on the deck, with a drink, as the sun is just about to set on a great sailing day. But don’t go to bed yet, the evening is still young!
