This classic Dutch-designed and built boat is stunning to behold with her varnished wooden hull, white waterline, prow, coachroof, and bulwarks, turned back bow and stern, wooden mast, with large lee-boards on either side. You can picture her sturdily plying the waters of the north Atlantic, anchored offshore in one of the inland bodies of water or 'meers' or tied up to the walls of a canal.
The vessel was launched in 1908 and the current owner found the boat in disrepair in 2002, but fell completely and utterly in love, bought her and undertook an extensive re-fit in 2003.
The craftsmanship makes you gasp. The re-fit is in keeping with the original craftsmanship of the boat. There are Dutch tiles in the salon and head, carved, gilded lions on either side of the doors, windows with curved frames & textured glass, that open into the cockpit from the salon. The windlass is over 100 years old, the blocks are hand-crafted, the wheel an 1860's eight-spoke mahogany & bronze steering wheel. The compass is an antique ship's binnacle and compass and can be moved to the middle of the cockpit & secured while sailing or put aside when at anchor.
Along with the classic looks of the boat, the re-fit included all the modern equipment to live aboard in 21st Century comfort on the Chesapeake Bay. An airconditioning unit, replaced the pot-belly stove, refrigeration installed, hydraulic steering, autopilot, depth sounder, chartplotter, vacuflush toilet, solar panel and more.
To say this is an interesting boat is an understatement. If you are looking for a head-turner, conversation starter, and TRADITION all rolled into one, come and take a look.
