Broker's Comments

UPDATE APRIL 2019 - now fully refitted and ready for launch

The original Lemsteraak design was drawn in 1876 in Lemmer, Holland and was intended as a herring fisher although because of their speed under sail they were mainly used to transport the fish around Northern Europe.

In the early 1900's they began converting them to pleasure craft and subsequently building them for that purpose, unusually for a Dutch barge the Lemsteraak has a long shallow keel allowing her to carry considerable sail. They are raced very competitively in the Netherlands and the east coast of the UK

This particular boat is the 9m, the smallest of the range however with her wide beam and round bilge she has plenty of volume, standing headroom for most without compromising her sleek lines above decks. Whilst she is still very much traditional she has been upgraded to make sailing her a little easier, self tailing sheet winches help and below some home comforts such as an electric cooker, fridge and foot operated water pressure switches mean she will be a pleasure to cruise or liveaboard on the river bank.

She has had a complete respray (Awlgrip) and for that she was completely disassembled outboard, every part stripped, cleaned, coated appropriately and she is now fully reassembled and polished. As you can see from the photographs the care and attention to detail throughout this process is phenomenal. It really is a joy to see.

I was smitten as soon as I saw what was inside that purpose built framed tent. Everything about her is just lovely and I can't wait to see her back on the water where she really could do anything you asked of her, cruise, race or be enjoyed alongside (a honeymoon retreat perhaps?)
