This sleek and rustic clipper was built in 1898 within four months. And all without a drawing. The ship sailed mainly in Zeeland, transporting coal and cement from Germany. Before World War I, the Zevenwouden was lengthened by 4 metres and got her first engine In 1958, a new diesel engine was installed, which has not been replaced to this day. A true oldtimer, therefore. More than 30 years ago, the Zevenwouden was converted into a sailing charter ship and equipped for multi-day trips for up to 24 people.
