Meet the captain

Captain Wido Arts

Captain Wido Arts started sailing in his homeland, the Netherlands, when he was 15 years old, by 20 he was sailing the Rhine onboard the mps Lady Anne, then known as the Avanti. After two years he became captain.

Wido then explored other opportunities cruising European rivers before acquiring the Lady Anne in 2002. Since then, he has sailed the Rhine and Moselle onboard this beautiful vessel – to which he devotes a great deal of his own time. But when he is away from his pride and joy he enjoys water sports, including sailing, and running regularly during the summer months.
