FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
Used by the current owners as a family liveaboard for more than a decade she proved to be a comfortable and practical home afloat. Refitted below decks in recent years she now provides 10 full sized berths with two heads. A large lower saloon provides a comfortable second living space for the evenings with a large multi-fuel stove keeping everybody cosy. The deck house saloon is perfect for eating around the large table while enjoying views over the deck while at anchor or on passage.
With the huge living space and vast provision of bunks the boat would be ideally suited for a family wanting to spend longer periods aboard or possible operation as a charter vessel. The current owners did have the boat coded for commercial operation previously, coding certification lapsed in 2016. Viewing is highly recommended to full appreciate her qualities.
The vessel was originally a steam tug. Built in 1903. She was purchased by the Dutch Navy in 1918 under the name MARIA II. In 1937 she was rebuilt with a new hull and a rounded and strengthened bow, so that she could be used as an icebreaker.
During the Second World War, the ship operated from Den Helder, The Netherlands, but never sailed under the German flag, although she was maintained by German command during this period.
In 1950 the vessel worked as a service tug on the North Sea above Texel and Terschelling. In 1953 she was registered under the name Y8005 and continued service as tug until being sold in 1983 and ending her commercial life.
She was re-named MALLEMOK (fulmar in Dutch) by the previous owner who converted her into a two-mast gaff ketch. The current owners have lived on the MALLEMOK since 2002, sailing in the Netherlands, Germany, the Baltics and UK.
