Classic Yachts: Restoring and Building


It is an remarkable moment at F.Bloemsma Aluminiumbouw in Makkum, Netherlands, two big J-Class yachts at the boatyard in the same time. The J-Class Rainbow is waiting for the transport to be finished at Holland Jachtbouw in Zaandam, near Amsterdam. The J-Class Atlantis is under construction inside the hall and be transported later to be finished at Claasen Jachtbouw in Zaandam. The first yacht of this serie, Lionheart, will be finished soon at Claasen Jachtbouw. There is a plan to build one more J-Class yacht, Svea, replica of the famous Tore Holm design. Svea is one of the best looking J-boats ever designed. And surprise - propably they will build two Sveas at the same time, let us see. After some years there will be huge races, 10 big J-boats fighting, that is what I am waiting for.

Restoring the old classic yachts, building the replicas by the old drawings and building traditional wooden boats.
