OOSTERSCHELDE is a three masted schooner from the Netherlands that was built in 1918. She is the largest restored Dutch freight ship and the only remaining Dutch three masted top sail schooner left (there were hundreds in the early 20th century). With a capacity of 400 tonnes she was used as a freighter and transported clay, stone and wood, herring, bran, potatoes and bananas. In the 1930's a heavier diesel engine was installed and some sail-rigging including the aft mast was removed. In 1939 she was sold to a Danish shipping company and, renamed Fuglen, and became one of the most modern ships in the Danish fleet. In 1954 she was sold to a Swede, renamed Sylvan and thoroughly rebuilt to a modern motorized coaster. In 1988 she was brought back to the Netherlands. She had been well maintained however restoration to the original state by private funding was too expensive so a foundation collected money, partly by selling shares in the ship. Restoration lasted from 1990 to 1992, with the help of her last Dutch captain and three maritime museums, to ensure authenticity. From 1996 through 1998 she made a trip around the world and her maintenance is paid for through paying passengers and company presentations.
H Appelo was the naval architect firm involved in the technical superyacht plans for OOSTERSCHELDE. Also the company H Appelo expertly collaborated on this venture.
