72' Classic TSDY
"Dunkirk Little Ship" 

Steel hull - Mint condition

How to describe beauty?
Amazone is a class of her own. Her interesting history is known and fully documented. 
In the first year after her launching, she played a leading part during the evacuation of the allied troops in Dunkirk. Proudly she wears the Dunkirk Little Ship title. She rescued about 1000 men, mostly French soldiers.

Time and money has never been an object to bring and keep this ship in her present condition. 
The interior is completely original and in meticulous state. 
Also the engines and navigational equipment are very well taken care off.

steel hull on steel ribs, teak deck and superstructure, interior: mostly painted with mahogany details.
