Wedding arrangements

Experience the best day of your life on board the Hendrina Johanna.

restauratie museumboot Den HaagThe ‘Hagenaar’ Hendrina Johanna is an unique wedding location. This sailing vessel originated from 1905 is the wonderful decor for a romantic and unforgettable wedding ceremony.

We will welcome the wedding guests on board with a fresh cup of coffee or tea and lemonade for the children.

Once everybody is present the bride and groom enter and will ‘tie the knot’. The ceremony can take place on the upper deck under a marquis, or below deck.

The wedding ceremony will be conducted by a fully licensed civil servant (Bijzonder Ambtenaar Burgerlijke Stand) from the city of The Hague.

Program and setup

We have ample experience organizing weddings on board of our boats and are happy to discuss the program for the day with you.

With one of the boats from our fleet you can travel with the guests to the location of a wedding reception or a wedding dinner.


The location of the museum boat is easily accessible by car and public transportation. The ship is anchored in the inner city harbor of The Hague and highly suited for a private wedding party of 25 guests.
