If you go to www.shipdata.nl/index and after that you see the index page and up on the right you see a search link
go to then you see the name scheepsnaam here you type in
koningin juliana and enter and you see the ship is built in 1975 and so on
The vessel was originally built as a fishery school training ship. (Stern trawler for pelagic fishing and trawling) until the mid eighties it was used as a pure fishery schoolship. when the schoolship Prinses Margriet was decomisioned the koningin juliana was also used as a trainingship for the dutch seafaring schools.
I sailed on her twice. once in 99 en once in 2000 think I stil have some pictures will try and find them in my archive.
After years and years of sailing as a training (cadet) ship the foundation whom operated the vessel didn't had the funds to maintain the vessel anymore. so it was sold. As far as I now it has been sold to youthwork
a semi goverment institution who works with youngsters who are hard to handle. By putting a group of young problemmakers on board guided by a crew of social workers the youngsters are trained in controling and improving themselves
by the way look at this link for the site of youthwork. Sory its in dutch only: http://www.den-engh.nl/pages/maritiemkoninginjuliana.html
