|Type of ship||92' tjalk 'De Vrouwe Christina'|
Conversion & Refit
The Dutch lee boarder 'De Vrouwe Christina' is a unique ship.
Built in 1957 by super yacht builder Feadship she is the only tjalk yacht which sailed so many offshore miles.
After many years of ocean passages, cruising central and north America as well as the Med, she was really used and tired when we became involved in her major renovation at SRF Shipbuilding in Harlingen.
A new cockpit design, a new design for the fore ship interior and exterior layout are only a few major items that had to be done. She has been fully renovated and refitted from keel to mast top. As Owners Representatives our works covered the design, calculations, engineering, styling, and project management from first sketch up to trials.
