Exclamation *Help* We call for more info. about our Dutch Steel Yacht

Hi!

We are a pair from Sweden that finally found our ”Dreamboat”.

Now when the winter is coming we thought it would be a god time to go deeper in to the history of the Boat. We do have the common information about her, but we could not understand Dutch so the internet couldn’t help us so far.

So we are hoping for that this contribution could give us some help on the way!
We want to know everything about the boat, and not at least is there any “sister boats”?

The boat is built by N.V. Nicolaas Witsen & Vis. Alkmaar 1958 and designed by G.W.W.C. Baron Van Höevell.

We do know that her name was DROMARA when she was sold the first time. On the originaldrawing we find following text: D. AUX. BERM._C.B YACHT (STEEL) Nr. 16856. Sixhaven. Amsterdam Holland samt Official No. 187880.

The boat dimension is: 12.20 x 3.55 meters and a weight for about 15 tons.

If anyone recognize this boat or have something to tell, know some links etc…
We are interested in all that have any connection to this boat!

We do have a homesite in English, where you can find more information about the boat (pictures) and us…
