Tugboat, which is popular at Maritime Heritage events, is for sale now. A more than 100 year old boat that is now used for recreation purposes. The seller has improved and renewed a lot during the period that this “Amsterdammer” has been in his possession. This makes it a boat that is structurally ready for her next chapter. The steelwork has been replaced where necessary and the underwater ship, freeboard, bulwark and decks have been blasted and are in a 2-component paint system. The engine room is very neat and the beautiful 2 cylinder Kromhout runs as it should. The interior in the spacious fore cabin is neat but spartan in terms of technology. In our opinion, this is an excellent opportunity to acquire a boat like this and take it to many nautical events. A boat for the real enthusiasts.
