Wylde Swan is the largest two-mast topsail schooner in the world. Built to win races, cross oceans, and sailed with passion.

Hinke de Vries, owner

Education Masterskip Masterskip is Wylde Swan’s educational programme for secondary school students. Over the course of a seven-week journey, students learn to sail the ship while their school curriculum continues on board. Guided by expert teachers, children discover how theoretical concepts apply to the real world. They foster their collaboration skills through shared adventures, helping them to discover their true potential. The Masterskip programme was developed in collaboration with renowned educational institutes. Masterskip offers unique learning experiences for school students in 4 HAVO and 4 & 5 VWO classes. Travel along with the Wylde Swan and learn more about science, sustainability and the practical application of science subjects.

“Historically your academic performance used to determine your career. Today, social intelligence has become much more important. Masterskip offers the students lots of opportunities to enhance their social skills, because everyone has to find their place in the group and circumstances are always changing.This is the kind of experience that will benefit you for a lifetime.�

Ship Interior design

MAIN HOLD Down below can be used for presentations and meetings, offering seating for up to 50 persons.

Wylde Swan’s interior does away with tradition for tradition’s sake. Clean lines, muted colours, and the use of materials like oak and canvas offer a serene environment.

OFFICERS MESS

“The slightly oval shape of the main hold is inspired by two hands, clasped together as a symbol of togetherness. The main hold is the heart of social life on board, and is easily reconfigured for study, meals, and rest, as well as the occasional raucous party. We wanted to give the ship a fresh and modern feel. By using a muted colour palette we accented the spaciousness of the deck house and the main hold. Both feel like a blank canvas, ready to be made home by the people who come on board.” Philip van Tol, Art director and interior design 88
