Zijlsloep (by Niek Goes)
The Zijlsloep is a 17' sailing sloop without a jib, gaff-rigged and equipped with a POD electric support engine. The ship is named after the medieval tidal creek Zijl, and it is a pun for the Dutch word zeilsloep.
This is an easy going sailing ship, with lots of comfort for an open daysailer. It will handle shallow waters, inland lakes, river delta and near shore sea-sailing.
