Close to a hundred years old, the "ALPHONSIA MARIA" is an authentic Dutch Freese Aak of 110 feet. It was built in 1913 in Groningen (NL) and remained in service until 1998. At the time it transported cereals along the small channels all over Northern Europe. During the past 90 years, the ship went through various transformations as technologies evolved. First Alphonsia Maria was built as a sailing boat. However, in 1926, the mast was taken down to be replaced by an engine.

 

Pool on the deck

The ship was fully renovated in 2002. The plans of the Italian Architect Carlo Ciacchella (joint owner of the ship) preserved all the authencity, while bringing comfort, modern luxury and the style of the Italian designers.
