    Description

    Not often am I asked to look at a boat under a grey and tired cover, but this boat was a complete surprise. This is a 9m sailing Dutch barge built to class by Jachtwerf Doevendans in The Netherlands in 1962, and designed to race and cruise Hollands’s waterways. Her suit of traditional sails could be described as 'over canvassed', but her current owner has sailed her single-handed regularly. Trained as a boatbuilder in the 1970s and a very experienced yachtsman, the current owner has meticulously refitted her to an extremely high standard. The resprayed hull is riveted above the waterline and welded below. Her teak decks are as new and the attention to detail of the lee boards, the varnish work and the windlass is stunning. The spars have been revarnished and lie alongside the hull under cover. The engine is original and looks very well maintained and turned over when I inspected the her. The Lemsteraak 9m is a popular yacht in the Netherlands and she would be ideal for the shallow waters of the east coast and Thames Estuary.
