This classic has been restored several years ago with great sense of style and is in excellent condition. Exclusivity and luxury jets from the mid-cabin boat and it is an apparition seen everywhere. By device (luxury seating areas, lighting, painted woodwork) and variation (steering bridge, saloon, aft) the private boat breathes "ELIZABETH" a familiar atmosphere and personal atmosphere. The slender boat knows the limited height no waiting for bridges and whispers through the water, the engine is very quiet. history in 1894 Gerben Baaij up her own boat, dinghy and boom maker in the old cocoa mill Blooker behind Weesperzijde at the Amstel. Gerben Baaij comes from an old boat makers sex. The oldest was a French Fransz of Middelburg (The Oulton), shipwright, who married in 1684 in Amsterdam. In an act of 1813 are to Gerrit Oulton, master of ship maker and his son Gerben, ship maker, companions in Amsterdam. Himself Gerben also worked as a shipwright at the Amsterdam Islands and worked as a boy still known Kromhout yard which was later converted into a museum . Around 1900 the bootbouwerij moved to the other side of the river Amstel, the Wiegel Street behind the Amsteldijk.
In the years 1900 - 1904 Gerben built - in addition wherries, booms and boats - some cabin motorboats. Only in 1901 some 3 teak mid cabin boats, the "ELIZABETH" is one of them. All of your own design! A teak tugboat (with 10 HP engine), intended for the Dutch East Indies, commissioned by the Amsterdam importer of Daimler engines. In addition, we have built steel motor yachts and sailing yachts and even a ferry for the Zeeland waters. It was regularly experimented with fast, open motorboats, long slender "auto boats" the forerunners of the later runabouts. Anno 2010 The boat is very suitable for making round trips with passengers. The ship has been here since the restoration also used and it has dangers that time on the beautiful Frisian waters.
