In the recent past the ship has been operated within the Offshore Wind sector for many years as a survey and guard vessel to carry out surveys of varoius kinds. The vessel has been prepared for a potential conversion into a sailing ship with foundation for masts etc. Various drawings and calculations available on request.
The ship has an ideal shape and structure as sailing boat and is suitable as freight sailor or as cruise vessel. All the plans have already been done by a very reputable Naval Architect.
