Abel Tasman

The futuristic ship of the Spido fleet lives up to the explorer’s name. It is a fine example of modern technology. The Abel Tasman is extremely spacious and has a unique, open feel. The glass side walls on the outer deck provide perfect shelter from the wind, allowing your guests to comfortably enjoy the breathtaking panorama.

You can generously accommodate more than 325 guests on this ship. All the ingredients for a stylish, grand welcome are in place. On board, your guests will lack nothing. The interior of the Abel Tasman can be adapted to the size of your party and the program. Regarding catering, audiovisual equipment and entertainment, we will be happy to make you an appropriate offer. There are special facilities for the disabled, such as elevators (max. 200 kg) and adapted toilets. Unfortunately, the sky deck is not wheelchair accessible.

Naturally, the ship has state-of-the-art navigation equipment and engines.

Sailing with Spido’s flagship is therefore a royal pleasure in every respect!


A piece of history

Abel Janszoon Tasman (1603-1659) was appointed by Anthony van Diemen, Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies, in 1642 to lead an expedition to explore the southern Pacific and Indian Oceans. The land where he planted the Dutch flag on Nov. 24, 1642, was named Van Diemen’s Land and was not renamed Tasmania until much later. During the same expedition, he discovered New Zealand, Tonga and the Fiji Islands.
