Sailor's humor

My timeless beauty SENTA has been sold !

Building a new boat is also the end of many happy sailing years with SENTA.



Why am I selling my "good old SENTA" ?

Here you can find the answer.

Some sailing stories (in dutch) are here and this is a Yachting World article from first owner Dr. C. den Hartoog.

Describing "SENTA" as just a blue water cruiser, would not do her justice. This oceangoing cruising yacht is for the ambitious yachtsman, who want to discover all those areas he could not reach normally. This is a yacht to cruise the Seven sea's. I wish the new owner good luck and many happy miles with her.
