The Sinterklaas Boat is the primary method of transportation used by Sinterklaas.


According to legend, every winter holiday, Sinterklaas journeys across the world by steam boat due his and St. Nicholas' patronage of sailors.


  • The design of Sinterklaas' boat is directly influenced by the Pakjesboot (Packet Boat) which arrives in Rotterdam annually as part of the city's Christmas festivities. Packet Boat 13 is used for the design, not the main boat used - Packet Boat 12. Packet 13 was used in 1993.
