The First Officer's cabin on board historic 19th C sailing ship De Walvisch. Bespoke and hand-built with solid teak and marine antiques. Compact but luxurious, a cabin with a rare Royal Navy submarine sink, wardrobe, drinks cabinet and screen with media player. Typically maritime with unusual forms, floor space is limited but the bed is suitable for couples and over 2m long. All stays on board ship include a cooked English breakfast in the mornings, served in the ship's galley from Navy silver.
