Zeehaen history

Francois spent two years looking for a hull suitable for a sailing cargo ship. He eventually found and bought the Zeehaen in the Netherlands.
Before he ended up in the Netherlands, De Zeehaen was a cod fisherman off the coast of Newfoundland in Canada.

At this moment the ship completed in Amsterdam.
