A classic Dutch sailboat. Designed to go on polar expeditions under any conditions.
AMAZONE is a modern expedition sailboat. This two-masted schooner was designed by a famous Dutch ship builder Olivier van Meer especially for comfortable long distance expeditions in polar latitudes.
She was built in 1963 and served as a fishing boat in the North Sea for many years. In 1993 it was reequipped into a sailboat and used for regular chartering. She is an outstanding example of Dutch sailing ships.
