This is really great to hear another classic with us...
Yes, but it seems they will make her look like Sultana and then two nice boats are lost...
Here is a video of Olympia of her transport into Feadship facility in Makkum.

Thanks Rene... really nice video.
This sure takes me back. There once upon a time boats this size were the most common bigger boys on the block. How things have changed in the last 40 odd years. Also looking at the hull plating much thicker than common today. Of course, this is a transverse framed boat.
Really great opportunity to see it progress and enjoy the progress. Looking forward to seeing the launch.
I agree - a small bit of yachting heritage lost and it is a great shame that so much time, energy, skill and of course money was spent on turning Sultana into something that is neither an original classic design nor a modern one, and worse that at least is in my eyes not very appealing .... but chacun a son gout....
I received these pictures of former Olympia now called "Monara"
