an Halamatic 30 Designed
as a smaller version of the Nicholson 31, the Halmatic 30 is very much the
same style - a heavy displacement long-keeler with a high ballast ratio.
They are strongly built and have an excellent reputation as a serious seagoing
yacht. Designed for Halmatic by John Sharp the Halmatic 30 was built from
the late 1970s to the mid 1980s.

Van de Stat 36 "Zee Hund" (SEAL) Sail No. ZH224
Built by owner Jim Freeman. Steel hull with teak laid decks.
After buying the plans Jim Freeman set to and
lofted the drawings. At the time Jim had a workshop as he was running
his own business. Evenings and weekends or whenever he had time he was
busy building Schülp. From setting the frames and then rolling the
steel he knows every inch of her. The decks are teak and took approximately
2 years alone to lay. In all it took Jim over 10 years to build. The sails
were ordered and bought before she could go near the water and anytime
there was any spare cash then an instrument, the mast or something was
bought. She was finally completed in 1999 and one of the hardest things
that Jim found was to find a name for her. She was finally named after
a small village off the Kiel canal where Jim's mother in law was living
at the time.
