Sail with the oldest lifeboat in the world Rutgers from Rozenburg to the seals

The oldest motor lifeboat in the world, the 'Jhr. J.W.H. Rutgers van Rozenburg' from 1907 sails to the habitat of the seals. There are dozens of them on the sandbanks west of Terschelling. They can be viewed up close from the low open cockpit of the 'Rutgers'. In the summer months this oldest motor lifeboat sails. If the weather makes this cruise with the Rutgers van Rozenburg less suitable, the m.s. Brandaris deployed.

Museumreddingboot Terschelling

The Foundation for the Preservation of the Oldest Motor Lifeboat in the World was established in 2003 to protect the former motor lifeboat Jhr. mr. J.W.H. Rutgers van Rozenburg to be purchased and restored. This ship had been converted into a pleasure yacht and is hardly recognizable as a lifeboat. Within a year, this boat was restored to its original condition with the help of many. At the same time, a museum jetty was constructed in the harbor of West Terschelling, where the 'Rutgers' was given a permanent berth. For example, one can now see the oldest and the newest lifeboats together in a harbor: a rich piece of history.
