Extensive winter refit
The 30m S/Y Reesle built by Engelaer will undergo an eight-month winter refit at Claasen Shipyard in The Netherlands.
The schooner was launched in 1995 and was built from an aluminum hull and superstructure. She can accommodate eight guests and four crew members.
The vessel was styled inside and out by Hoek Design Naval Architects.
Today, she is at Classen Shipyard for an extensive refit in order to prepare the ship for a round-the-world cruise to New Zealand.
"The owners’ initial plans to start in October 2018 were brought forward two months, so my colleague and I immediately flew to Kiel to join three crew members in sailing Reesle to Holland. Within a week we were removing the mast and the yacht was inside our facility just north of Amsterdam", explains the project manager Wouter van Rijn.
She will also receive an engine upgrade plus a new bow thruster.
