The once majestic three-master built at the British shipyard Heald & McKenzie from Buckie served as a minesweeper in the middle of the last century under the name "Hr. Ms. Marken II ". The ship was then loaned to the Zeekadettenkorps Nederland as a youth base for sea explorers.
In 1977 it was sold and converted into a proud three-masted Barkentine and got its current name. It was used for day trips at the IJsselmeer. In 2002 she suffered damage during a storm in Muiden and has since perished in the same place
The wreck has been an eyesore for the municipality of Gooise Meren for years. They prefer to see it disappear as soon as possible. But that 'as soon as possible' does not get along since it has been 18 years since. In the meantime, the ship is crumbling further and further: every storm increases the damage.
