First of all: There is no building of series in the Yard of the Vries. De Vries in combo with Royal Van Lent form together the FEADSHIP organisation. Under this name both yachts were marketing
there ships in the US (and elsewhere).
De Vries is together with Van Lent, now Royal Van Lent de most prominent Dutch yachtbuilder, on same level of uniqueness.
Had this boat been in Holland
, she was sold in a second, unconditional state.
Big question is maintenance
. If the photo' s are correct that must be reasonable.
Underwatership and wind/waterline the most vulnerable part, as well as the teak deck
It' ll cost quite a bundle to maintain this sort of yachts and I presume that little maintenance
had been effectuated. The better, if I am wrong in my assumption.
