Vision Doeve Brokers

Naval architect Olivier van Meer has made the drawings for the conversion of a Danish Hajkotter into a seagoing commercial yacht, making it a beautiful classic sailing yacht with very good sailing characteristics. A real lady who is an asset to any historic port. The vendor always maintained her very well and that shows. Shipyard H. Bültjer Bootswerft in D-Ditzum did do a lot of that work. In 2019, for example, the entire freeboard (up to 1 plank below the waterline) and the bulwark including stanchions were renewed. It is a commercial yacht that is under class (Register Holland Zeevaart) and this means that inspections take place every year. The spars are maintained by Piet Blaauw in NL-Stavoren. Despite her dimensions, it is an easy to maneuver yacht, due to her hydraulic bow- and stern thruster. In our eyes a very well (top) maintained seagoing sailing yacht that is cherished by the owner and for which we are looking for an enthusiast who will close the Esther Jensen in his or her heart too.
