FROM OPTIMIST TO ZEELANDER
Meet Peter. Raised in the green outskirts well outside Amsterdam called “‘t Gooi”, Peter was brought up with training in dinghy-sailing basics. However, it turned out that this was not Peter’s idea of leisure… Now, being aged 42 and having recently sold his successful business, he decided it was time to reward himself.
Peter opted for a lovely Zeelander Z44 in Bentley Blue. “It was love at first sight” Peter recalls.
“The boat is perfect for entertaining and we use the boat a lot. I regularly allow friends to use the boat when I’m unable to join. Zeelander provides us with an hastle-free ownership so I don’t need to worry about cleaning, service or a Captain (the latter is often last minute for which I apologize, haha). What I also love is the joystick docking system. Even though I’m technically allowed to operate the boat, I really like docking and the joystick just makes it so easy.”
