Description

This Super van Craft is ideal for families or groups who want to sail the Dutch inland waterways and be the center of nature during a hike on the slabs of, for example, the Wadden Sea. Also, the Gerben van Manen is a ship with a lot of history, as the atricle below from the "Stichting stamboek ronde en platbodemjachten describes.

The most appealing skûtsje of the hand of Minne Molles van der Werff in Sneek is the 'De Drie Gebroeders' [S993N] built in 1911 by order of skipper-fuel merchant Petrus van Vellinga from Sneek. As shown in the specifications that have survived, the ship was to be 17.83m long and 3.53m wide. According to the measurement, which took place at Sneek on May 8, 1911, the actual dimensions were 17.89 and 3.58 m. So the builders had reasonably adhered to the specifications. The ship was measured at 38.737 tons.

On October 4, 1919, Van Vellinga sold the ship to Willem Bouwhuis from Poppingawier and it was renamed "De Onderneming" . When re-measured, the ship now measured 42,109 tons, almost 3 1/2 tons more. Possibly the layout had changed or the den had been raised slightly. It became the first skûtsje purchased by the Stichting Heerenveenster skûtsje in 1956. In 1957, it was renamed "Gerben van Manen. Because of its white color, the skûtsje was also more or less mockingly called 'Willem Barentsz'. Heerenveen would sail with this in the SKS until 1961, until the committee purchased the current 'Gerben van Manen' [L1418N], a Piipster from 1915. In 1961 the ship was bought by Ph. J.W.A. Diderich from Bilthoven. The ship was then 4 meters shortened and fitted with a cabin by Niestern Scheepsbouw Unie BV in Hellevoetsluis and converted into a motor yacht with a powerful engine. The then owner (unknown) didn't like it, because of the seas of water, which kept getting everyone wet. The name 'Gerben van Manen' was retained.
