ORGANIZATION

 

The freedom of the water, the power of the city and all the creativity needed to create an extraordinary world. Our multi-level ships offer the possibility to make an unforgettable event of any type of event in the perfect style and atmosphere; company parties, conferences and product launches, but also for new concepts such as a sailing showroom, studio or hybrid event. We do this for our clients in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and soon also in London and Cannes.
