Building style

Which types of wood and glues are used. How are the motors and engineering constructed in this ship. You will find the answers to these questions here.


The specialists in our yard have chosen Sipo mahogany with the perfect flaming, quality and colour. This warm colouring of the wood shows how special this product is. The hull is built up of three layers glued mahogany (two diagonal and one lengthwise), stapled with epoxy, forming a skin of 23 mm thick. This manner of building has the advantage of creating a fixed form hull, that is nevertheless light weight. Outstanding in this ship are the shell strakes which run from front to end without cross wise joints, making them 11 meters long. The oak framing of the ship makes the base for a solid and fixed form hull, that manages high speeds and strong forces without any difficulties.

Glues, coating and paint

The epoxy glues ensure an extraordinary longevity for the ship and a low maintenance level as well; practice has already shown this. The whole ship has been varnished with seven layers of two pack coating, of which the last layers are sprayed to achieve the result one might expect from a ship like this. The underwater hull has also been thoroughly handled with a two pack coating paint system, the last layers consisting of anti fouling paint.

The combination of varnished mahogany, marine blue and white leather cloth and stainless steel polished fittings makes this a ship like no other, completely unique.


The classic charisma of this exquisite model presents a contrast with the modern motor system that has been installed. The two Volvo Penta's IPS 350 that have been built in manage everything electronically and are perfectly tuned to each other, both with high speeds on open water as well with a slower pace in the canals. This Volvo system offers many advantages compared with the conventional system with propeller shafts and a separate rudder system. This is demonstrated in the higher top speed, the faster acceleration and in the higher fuel efficiency achieved by the extremely effective transmission.


To ensure an optimum isolation of the engine compartment, we have consulted the renowned experts in the area of sound and vibration, the firm Van Cappellen from Papendrecht. Their advise towards a motor with minimum sound and maximum functionality included the use of different types of materials for isolation, how to secure the motor to the foundation and as well the passage of the tailpieces through the hull. The astute calculations made especially for this ship ensure the absence of unpleasant noise on the whole ship; this applies to the exhaust pipes as well, as they are placed under water in the tailpieces of the motors.


The tailpieces of both motors have double propellers. On each axle two propellers have been installed of which one is right rotating and the other left rotating, this compensates for the propeller deviation. The closed off engine compartment includes a fully automatic fire extinguishing system to warrant safety on board. In the back of the hull your will find beautiful air inlets made from stainless steel. These are connected with the engine compartment through attenuating and water damming channels and provide the fresh air for the motors. An additional option is the IPS joystick (Inboard Performance System). With this system you can connect both motors to the joystick, making manoeuvring simple, safe and fun. For additional information on the joystick system you can check out the Volvo website.

Anchor system

The ship is equipped with an easy to handle electronic anchoring system, that can be easily managed from the position as driver. A push on the button will start the system and lower or raise the stainless steel anchor that weighs 10 kg. The display will show you how much chain is given and at what speed. The raising alarm and the overload safety make anchoring safe and easy. The clever system brings the anchor automatically straight (and not turned) into the anchor vault. The stainless steel anchor chain is pulled automatically into the anchor container in the fore ship.
