Lelystad, 24 February 2017 – On 1 January 2017, Captains Sven and Zippi took over the sailing ship Zuiderzon from Captain Kees. But that"s not all… The two have also given the vessel a new name: Amalia. "Amalia is a popular name in both the Netherlands and Germany,” says Captain Sven.
"Amalia is a very recognisable name in the Netherlands,” explains Sven. "It is a somewhat old-fashioned name in Germany, but one that is regaining popularity. We also thought it would be a good idea to have the new name start with an A, should the ship ever be included in an alphabetical list.”
Love at first sight
Sven and Zippi are ecstatic about their new purchase. "The Amalia is a beautiful ship that is extremely popular,” says Sven. "In terms of both the name and size, this ship fits in perfectly with the other ships in our fleet: the Ambiance, Allure and the Actia.” The good sails, spacious cabin and ample amount of natural light on board were the determining factors for Sven and Zippi"s purchase.
