Built in 1952 as a tug and converted into a topsail schooner in 1990, Jacob Meindert is one of the more extreme boat transformations ever undertaken. With a hull length of 27m, she is still one of the fastest schooners of her size.
The comprehensive conversion was designed and engineered by Olivier van Meer.
