Welcome aboard the Tiamo

A ship's name of love, Tiamo literally means in Italian "I love you" . The Tiamo is therefore lovingly sailed and maintained by Piet and Miranda van Meel. The ship was originally 105 meters long when they bought him, and was then sailed with crew. Several years ago, Peter and Miranda decided to let shorten the ship to 86 meters so they are allowed to sail the ship without crew. Since then the cabin in the bow was that was originally intended for crew empty and was soon appointed as a studio. Since 2016, this cabin will be for guests. For you !

Peter and Miranda and welcome you aboard their "love boat" Tiamo.
Even our grandparents from both sides were skippers family . Piet and Miranda meet each other at the age of 16 withe there parents on the ship . Then it took 5 years learning before we could buy a ship for ourselves , and that's been 24 years back now. We get married by 21 and 22 and buy our first Ship . Tiamo is our 4th ship and we have a lot of experience with it and now we are sailing for a German company.

The sailing area:

The Tiamo is mostly sailing the Rhine, Main, Moselle, Neckar and Donau area . Traveling through Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary, sometimes even further. Always on the move through beautiful landscapes and at night we drop the anchor between the mountains in the countryside, or near a town, village or for a lock. Every trip a new cargo with a new destination.
The ship is only occasionally in the Netherlands, you can travel by train, bicycle or car to us and get on board. Your car or bike, we just take on board. How special is that!

Sail Training practice

In this case it can be quite educational to go a few days on board with Piet and Miranda. They can give you situation-related tips: e.g. priority rules, the buoy age of waterways, the coherence of professional- and joyrides and the communication between the ship and the port. You will get answers to all of your questions.
Furthermore, you should experience the enormous “dead corner” in front of the prow of a freighter. The Tiamo,s wheelhouse is the best place on vacation to get practical experience and moreover it will lead to a better understanding of professional and fun captains. Believe me, after having been a few days on board with our boatmen you will have a lot more knowledge than before. The practical experience you got on board will help you navigate your own yacht more safely and with lots of more fun.
