A spectacular water coaster
Despite the bad weather, Captain Willem van der Decken set out to sea with his ship De Hollander looking for wealth and riches. His greed was so great, that he ordered his crew to sail on Easter Sunday, although it was forbidden. Since that day, everyone on board is doomed to sail forever on the seven seas. Nowadays, the red-sailed ship is still sailing around the world... people called it De Vliegende Hollander.

Blood red sails
"I saw a ship in the distance. It had three masts and blood red sails. It was if a bright red light was shining in there. The ship looked like it has been sailing the oceans for years. I could swear it was "De Vliegende Hollander"..."

A ghost ship
"During a heavy storm, we saw a boat coming towards us. It seemed to float above the waves. When the ghost ship was going to hit our ship, it vanished as quickly as it appeared.

Emerging out of nowhere
