The aluminium hull is being built at Shipyard Made in Moerdijk and will arrive with Holland Jachtbouw early in 2015. The rig, including all spars and topmasts will be made by Ventis Enkhuizen, with the main mast at a length of 52m supporting a 25m boom.

Displacing 343 tons, the schooner will be fitted with a hybrid drive, similar to the system developed by Holland Jachtbouw which was built into the J Class superyacht Rainbow.This hybrid system ensures silent running at night and while sailing the drive can generate sufficient power to run all the systems overnight without the need for additional fuel.

The 51m Holland Jachtbouw and Dykstra superyacht has been designed for both racing and cruising and will accommodate 8 guests and 7 crew, with a classic interior from De Vos De Vries.

Due to launch in Spring 2016, the schooner’s maiden voyage will be to the Baltic for the Summer, followed by winter in the Caribbean. From 2017, she will be seen cruising remote parts of the world, and taking part in races on the Classic Circuit, Tall Ships and Transatlantic.
