Diesel engine and/or steam driven Dutch passenger ship.
The oldest and most exclusive of its kind in The Netherlands.
Maximum capacity 110 passengers - Excellent condition.

Beautiful historic Dutch steamer ‘anno 1897’. The ms (or ss) "Succes" is a former steam tug, restored as passenger ship for day trips (f.i. dinner cruises) up to 110 guests.

Also suitable as luxury yacht, houseboat or restaurant ship. Absolutely in top condition with lovely decorated 19th century lounges. Unique in all aspects. Amongst others, a large steam organ (calliope) on deck.

This classic passenger ship is offered “as is, where is” and ready for use, including inventory and stocks.

The private ship, which has been used in recent years as party boat to cover the maintenance costs, lends itself not only for day trips (there are no cabins), events and parties, but also offers excellent opportunities as a (docked) catering establishment/restaurant, luxury yacht or houseboat.

Due to the absence of a successor and the owner’s intention to move abroad, the decision has been made to sell this special, completely furnished and very well-equipped (over 115 years) antique ship.

The nostalgic “Succes”, built in 1897 is definitely a unique object with a particularly interesting history. In the Netherlands it is the oldest still sailing, two propeller driven steamship.

From 1985 to 1994 the ship was completely renovated, modernized, converted to accommodate passengers, and a diesel motor was added (with its own 3rd propeller).
Since then the ship has been carefully maintained (internal as well as external, optical and technical) and at this time the ship is in all respects in excellent condition.
The ms/ss “Succes” is certified for NL zone 2 and on the Rhine to Basel (CH).

Since 1997 the owner has made the exclusive ship available (in principe only on average about 15 to 20 times per year) for groups up to 110 passengers, hosting various business meetings and (private) parties (official wedding location).
But not only that, it is also the perfect recording decor and crowd puller during (nautical and steam) events, which is why the “Succes” has been part of many representative activities. With its beautiful looks, and by having Europe's largest steam organ on deck (calliope, which can be heard from miles away), it is a real attraction for all around.

The owners aim of keeping this beautiful "sailing heritage" afloat is to preserve the ship as a document of the national maritime history in a not-for-profit operation. The target was/is the conservation costs coverage, on basis of a limited number of trips!

Steam ship with motor propulsion.

The steam boiler (15 m3 treated boiler water, 15 bar working pressure, 150 m2 heated surface, 214 flame pipes) is now fired with 2 Elco diesel burners and just about every sailing brought under pressure (for the steam organ). The steam plant is certified (no. 298090042, Steam-registerno. K-22488). For some years now, a diesel engine (with own propeller) is used for propulsion. The 2 triple expansion steam engines (Koopman 1916, each 250 psi, 90 rpm, with Kuypers thrust bearings and a condenser) are held in condition. Sailing under steam requires amongst other things, the assembly of both "steam propellers" and additional steam engines maintenance. The steam plant also includes f.i.: 110V steam generators (2 x Sunderland 6KW), steam steering gear, pump, anchor winch (uncoupled and now electric powered) and a calliope (steam organ).
