The Dutchess is a tribute to the Golden Age of Dutch yacht building, the 1970s. In this period Henk Lunstroo and Willem de Vries Lents, among others, drew beautiful yachts and cutters that were mostly built in steel. The Dutchess revives these times, an entirely new design with classic lines and a traditional interior. Designed and built to sail oceans, the Dutchess is a comfortable yacht with luxury accommodation for 6 people. Without a doubt the largest boat that does not require a license.
Years ago we met a seasoned water sportsman. Together with our regular yacht architect Martin de Jager we developed and built the Dutchess for him. A sturdy pilothouse trawler of just under 15 meters. The client owned dozens of ocean-going vessels, but had no license to sail.
We also started a construction project for ourselves, but for various reasons it is still unfinished. Simply put, we would rather have ten sloops in stock than one Dutchess. Other concepts such as charter rentals also proved difficult to round out.
The tumultuous price developments of sea freight in the past two years and an increased focus on series construction made us decide to focus on boats up to 12 meters in length. And with that came the decision not to continue with the Dutchess. We have sold the moulds and building rights and are selling the boat under construction at a substantial discount. Namely for € 500,000, - excluding VAT.
The boat is in an advanced stage of completion. To a certain extent there are possibilities to finish the boat according to the customer's wishes.
We would like to discuss this with you.
