Update: she’s now for sale. After WW II lots of aluminum was left due to the manufacturing of aluminum airplanes. Boat manufacturers started to use the aluminium for new light weight boat models. One of them was the Swiss manufacturer Spiboot. A lot of boats were produced and there are still some of them around. Most of them, unfortunately in bad condition. Classic Boats Amsterdam still have some small spiboot runabouts for sale. Under the wing of the team of Classic Boats Amsterdam a model ‘taifun junior’ was recently restored. Update: she’s now for sale. More information about that project can be found here.
The classic Devea Tourboat was built in 1934 by a Dutch yard called ´De Vlijt´ by De Vries. Today De Vries Shipyard is known by Feadship Royal Dutch Shipyards. One of world’s finest superyacht builder. The Devea has been restored by our firm. There is room for 2 sleeping places, a kitchen and a toilet. This cultural heritage was displayed at the Dutch boatshow HISWA in 1936. She is powered by a Volkswagen Golf engine that runs on diesel. This weekend the 27th – 29th of June the Devea joins the Feadship Heritage Fleet. Together with classic sister Feadships she joins the boat tour at Aalsmeer.
