Dutch flat bottom sailing barges Lemsteraken, starting in different harbors in Friesland and at the frisian coast of IJsselmeer :
The Frisian Lemsteraak type is a traditional sailing ship type with a flat bottom. The Lemsteraak is perfectly adapted to the requirements of shallow waters and flat coast, such as the Wadden Sea. The flattened keel of the Lemsteraak makes it possible to fall dry on wadden sea. For fishing on the Zuider Zee in 1876 at the shipyard in Lemmer, "De Boer" the first Lemmeraak, now called Lemsteraak was built, a fast cruiser and 10 to 15 m length. With it, the catched fish was taken over by the so-called herring dinghies and transported to markets.
Vissermanaak, without deck house, but with an extra large cockpit:
Since 2000 the number of Lemsteraken with the layout of Visserman has increased steadily. The ships today are on average longer than that of the last century (today many of the boats 14 to 17 meters long). The large cockpit offers the crew, for example a family with children a lot of space.
Various schooner, Schokker, Zeeschouw and Grundel for rent in Friesland:
Schokker were fishing sailing ships that were used on the Zuiderzee and were distinguished in particular by the so-called Schokkerbaum, a swing device for fishing with trawls. The name of this type of ship comes from the island in the Zuiderzee Schokland.
A Zeeschouw has a relatively narrow base, falling heavily to the outside side walls and a falling inwards Boisel. The rigging is adapted from the Botter and consists of a mainsail, a Botterfock and driven on loose bowsprit jib to be set .
The Grundel (has a flat bottom, which runs up in the front and back easily. Originally used for fishery they were built during the twentieth century increasingly Grundel in yacht design. First made ??of wood, later steel.
