The ‘Aanwinst’ (meaning the ‘Acquisition/Addition’) was built over a century ago as a tugboat. This workhorse had to withstand some forces and you can still see the thick riveted steel plates the ship was built with. Over time this old tugboat was modernised to a stylish touring ship with an open top and a new diesel engine. A handsome brass ‘Leiden’s Lion’ on the helm guards the old ship.

For its slender shape and inclined stern this characteristic tugboat is a welcom "addition" for the canals of Leiden.

This distinct ship has sound equipment on board which is compatible with modern digital music sources.

The Aanwinst is a classical steel boat. This boat was built as a tug in 1912. This boat was supposed to handle a lot of force so it was reinforced with big plates. Therefore the Aanwinst is a heavy boat. Over the years this boat was modernized and in 2012 the whole boat was checked and necessary replacements were made. Because of its slender linings this boat is a real eye catcher. The Aanwinst has a music system with a cd player and room for digital music devices.
