Very nice lined fisherman barge, finishing and launching 2006.
A beautiful and qualitatively excellent built Visserman Lemsteraak, finished with a feeling for detail. It is also a very fast sailing ship that performs well in races. The boat has recently been fitted with a new mast and matching rigging.
The Lemsteraak was developed in the second half of the 19th century from the fishaak of the Frisian inland waters. After 1900, as a rule, they were built in steel. In the basic form the Frisian round yachts can be recognized: curved bow, round lines with horizontal egg shape with the tip backwards. In the head the foredeck rises sharply.
Compared to the botter, tjalk and shocker it's a young type. In 1898, the first real wooden Lemsteraak was built at De Boer's shipyard in Lemmer. Before that many round ships were built, but they were not yet indicated as Lemsteraak. Incidentally, the name 'aak' has been used for many types of vessels for much longer, such as fish, botacles and mussels. The data on the first Lemsteraak could not be taken from the builder's archives, but came from the preserved 'cutting books' of the sailmakers. In 1899 sailmaker De Vries supplied the sails for the ship built by De Boer, which was referred to as a pleasure boat.
The main characteristic is that the volume of the foreship is larger than that of the stern. The original lemsteraak was covered in front of the mast and as a rule had a bun, although dinghies, the so-called herring fleets, were used to catch herring, which were towed. The fishing vessels were usually 10.0 - 12.5 metres long; however, larger barges (up to 17.5 metres) were also built early on as yachts with a cabin behind the mast, a higher stern and a buoy rudder.
The fish stakes from De Lemmer remained barges for the fishermen. The large barges that De Boer built for water sports were called pleasure craft, model Lemster yacht or just yacht.
It was only with the construction of 'De Groene Draeck' (chosen by Princess Beatrix in 1956 as a national gift for her 18th birthday) that the name Lemsteraak really became established. The Lemsteraak is not a product that rolled off the drawing board as a standard design, but a common name for a collection of very different ships which, however, according to the namers, had common characteristics.
