Project update: Spirit Of Venice

At this moment the Spirit Of Venice is at our service yard in the centre of Enkhuizen. On February second, the yacht hit the water. Thanks to the good care of De Gier Maritiem the whole process went really smooth.
After a week of check ups and tests the yacht was ready to put on the rig. Tuned Rigs and ropes prepared the 2 masts and De Groot riggers from Stavoren put on the two masts. In the pictures below you can see this process.
After this the yacht was moored at the VMG service yard for the final assembly, tests and sea trials. The yacht will be delivered to the owner in early April.

Team ROST Ker46 part of team U-Dek

Project: Ker 46
Type deck: Dual Grey black

At U-dek we create High-end deck solutions for all kinds of boats. Last week we installed a brand new U-dek on this Ker46. We tried a complete new design with custom trim strips for the traveler and running backstays. For us it is also a good showcase to show that U-Dek is the best deck solution in all weather conditions.

This Ker46 is sailed by Team ROST (Rotterdam Offshore Sailing Team), a team that supports youth offshore sailing. This is a goal we love to support at VMG yachtbuilders and U-Dek.

Project: VMG One off 41 / Zeeman 41

About eight years ago the Zeeman 41 was built bij VMG Yachtbuilders. This beautiful and sturdy design is still a dream to lots of sailors.

In the late season of 2017 we did a technical refit with complete new B&G outfit and a total check up. This winter we are doing a cosmetic check up by refitting all the woodwork on the yacht, polishing the hull and give the mast a new layer of paint. At the beginning of the season 2018 the yacht will look like new again.
