Renovation sailing yacht Beatrix costs tons: princess pays extra

De Groene Draeck has been out of service since September 2021 due to the large-scale renovation and overhaul of almost the entire ship. This involves stripping it inside and out, preserving the hull inside and out and repairing or replacing installations and furnishings where necessary. The sailing yacht is expected to be ready to sail at the end of the summer of 2022.

The then crown princess Beatrix received the yacht in 1956 for her eighteenth birthday as a gift from the Dutch people. The State donated her maintenance.

De Groene Draeck is a lemsteraak, a traditional Frisian sailing ship, and will be in service this year for 65 years. The ship is heavily used by the princess, her family and guests.
