The Zomp can hold around 20 passengers. Here the ship is heading for the Regge and the neighbourhood of Notter/Zuna. The boat can use it's sail, but has a motor as well. So it can sail when there's not enough wind. Apart from that the boat passes some very low bridges where the mast has to lower completely.

This new wharf in Enter was built in 2009, to honour the many shipyards in Enter centuries ago. All Zomps for the region were built in Enter and there were more than 100 skippers in Enter who were sailing the rivers and seas as far as England. Enter has nowadays no more than 20.000 inhabitants and hundred years ago a lot less.

Now you can start a trip with the Zomp in three places:
Enter, Rijssen and Hellendoorn.
