Launch Party

Are you coming to the Launch Party?

We're super-excited to announce the launch party (April 20-21) and update you on the progress of the build (as of March 18th). We get to see the lovely mahogany varnished as the interior is nearly all installed now.

We also take a tour of the technical room and see the water maker installed, the hydronic heating system and the 48V bus.

If you would like to come to the launch party we'd like to welcome you on April 20 & 21 in the Netherlands. Makkum is a charming village in the northern Netherlands province of Friesland and is the Silicon Valley of aluminum boat-building. Our launch party coincides with the Open Yard Day at KM Yachts just a few meters away across the harbour. So if you are interested in Aluminum boatbuilding this is a great opportunity to visit this town, and come aboard Distant Shores IV at her launch. There are tickets for the launch dinner-party + christening or if you've travelled in from a distance why not stay the night in Makkum and come for the Sunday as well. We're having a brunch on the Sunday morning after the dinner-party then a seminar on ocean voyaging and planning for ocean crossings.
