August 2009 the Truly Classic 78 Bontekoning returned to the Netherlands, meanwhile her complete sail wardrobe has been renewed. From winter 2009/2010 the yacht underwent an extensive and thorough maintenance program.
The hull has been re-spray-painted racing Green and all the woodwork has been varnished.
With her lovely flush deck and long overhangs, Bontekoning is the epitome of a Truly Classic that has been customised to a high degree. This family cruiser is designed for shallow waters, with a draft of just 2.60 metres. Exceptionally easy to handle, she has an aluminium stowaway mast and is cutter rigged.
The sophisticated modern lines of her aluminium hull and underwater configuration make for an exciting sailing performance. Add in the large tank capacity and full-height engine room and you have a yacht that is comfortable for all on for deep ocean voyages.
An extraordinary Art Deco interior features classic detailing throughout. Bontekoning’s spacious deckhouse offers a sumptuous U-shaped dining area with superb views, and also houses a navigation station. The large owners stateroom is located forward of the mast bulkhead with a double berth. Two guest suites and one crew cabin (all ensuite) are integrated in the aft section. In addition to a large open plan lounge, further relaxation options are available at deck level in the aft cockpit.
