The unique nostalgic antique passenger ship “Succes”, is definitely a unique item with a particularly interesting history. Built in 1897 as a steam tug, she became the oldest two propeller driven Passenger Steamship in the Netherlands after a complete rebuilt/refit from 1985 till 1994. It has been completely renovated refurbished and modernized …. and is always carefully maintained. After addition of a diesel engine (with own, third propeller), the ship sails on diesel independently from steam.

Since 1996 the owner has made the exclusive ship available for groups up to 110 passengers for hosting various business meetings and (private) parties; in principle only on average about 15 times per year, just to cover the fixed & maintenance costs. The owners aim of keeping this beautiful "sailing heritage" afloat is/was to preserve the ship as a document of the national maritime history in a not-for-profit operation.

The multipurpose “Succes” was rented for meetings, parties, as a docked restaurant, shooting location, décor/scenery for shows and crowd puller during (nautical and steam) events. Which is why the “Succes” has been part of many representative activities, movie, music and commercial recordings. With its special appearance, beautiful looks and Europe's largest steam organ on deck (be heard from many miles away), it is a real attraction. This passenger ship / party boat with rich history, is perfectly suited for day trips (there are no cabins, but also offers excellent opportunities as a (docked) catering establishment, restaurant, club, luxury yacht or houseboat.

This classic Dutch vessel (diesel engine driven - “Succes” Europe 02320848 – brandnr. 20848 B R 1993) is offered and sold as a motor vessel, “as is, where is” located in the home port “Almere” (20 min. drive from Amsterdam) in the Netherlands. From Schiphol Amsterdam Airport, it’s only a 30-min. drive.

This easy to sail ship is certified for all Dutch inland waters (zone 2 + the international river Rhine till Basel Switzerland). Interested parties have full access to all documents (mostly in Dutch), but original drawings of build/construction are lost.

The “Succes” is absolutely in a good condition and “with heart & soul” very well taken care for since 1994. With the available nautical and restaurant equipment/facilities, she is “more than complete” and absolutely ready for immediate use.

The absence of a successor and move abroad, is the one and only reason for owner to let go (t)his beauty!
