The Schooner 'Louise' has Mallorca as her homeport. She was originally designed by Daniel Bombigher, named 'Dream'.
The purpose of the refit is to improve her sailing quality's. For this a new keel construction has been added. A part of the hull needed replanking and the inside construction needed major repear work and renovations. The rigging has been also partly renewed. Her interior is upgraded and her technical installation is re-freshed. Also a bowthruster and folding prop. is installed.
The Astilleros yard at Mallorca took care of most of the works and 'Louise' is as new and faster than ever.
The Olivier van Meer office is responsible for the hydrostatics, new sailplan, various calculations, the construction and engineering drawings. Furthermore we take care of the full project management, contracting and supervision as owners representative.
