Can anyone please tell me what has become of the Dutch 3-m, Zeelandia? There is a recent photo on Shipspotting:

A friend from Germany uncovered these sites:

http://www.brons-industrie.nl/industrie-genoten/zeelandia

http://oudeschepenvanharderwijk.nl/zeelandia.htm

These links give her history, but nothing current. The Shipspotting photo wa posted in 2007, but I don't know if that's when it was taken.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I've checked some of the Dutch blogs also, with no success.

Hi Steve,

The text in the Abelforte site is relatively recent, it says:
Now in 2007, Marnix and Sofia have a fine and comfortable ship with good sail-qualities in international sail-areas.

Regards,
Werner

Hallo Steve,
The Zeelandia is still OK and in her homeport Harderwijk, The Netherlands.
Still owned (since 1976) by Capt. Marnix van der Wel.
Marnix is quite occupied working as shipmaster offshore oilindustry.
He is expecting to spend more time with the Zeelandia (offshore)this year.

Regards
Ed van der Wel
