Stad Amsterdam was launched in 2000 as a result of an idea conceived during Sail 1995 and with the combined efforts of the city of Amsterdam and Randstad – a company committed to stimulating employment. The ship was built as a work experience project by unemployed young people and school leavers and now will be used for sail training whilst promoting the city of Amsterdam.
