Vision Doeve Brokers

A vessel with a very rich history. She was commissioned by the Kromhout engine factory as a demonstration vessel. Subsequently in service of the Dutch Royal Navy, after which she was temporarily taken over by the Ministry of Finance and used as a customs vessel 'Voorwaarts'. Until 1967, the Dutch Royal Navy and the Ministry of Finance alternately used the ship, after which she passed into various private hands. The current owner has thoroughly refurbished the ship and invested a lot to get her into her current condition. The hull, deck and superstructure were sandblasted and treated with a 2-component in 2023. The heart of the ship is a slow-running Bolnes 3 cylinder engine. The interior fore and aft has been completely removed and this gives the new owner the opportunity to design a new interior according to his own ideas. In our eyes, this is a great opportunity to get started with this special ship.
