The Arnemuidense Hoogaars, a typical craft in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands


The Hoogaars was built in 1874 at the yard of Meerman, Arnemuiden. This typical craft finds its origin in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands. However, unsuited fort the sea they went out to fish mainly for shrimps in the river Scheldt estuary. The catch was boiled on board and sometimes exported to England by the mail boat from Flushing.
The sail number BR6 and name Helena Cornelia did not belong to this original ship; it was meant as a tribute to the family of the model maker, Jan van den Heuvel, that owned and worked with a similar craft.
