The Ship is named after the rough and treatures water between the isladn Vlieland and the island Terschelling, in the North of the Netherlands. When the wind is blowing half a gale, the water there starts foaming and turns nearly as white as milk. Stortemelk is translated flooding milk.
After being used as a fishing vessel for 32 years, the Stortemelk was refitted in 1993 to become a sailing ship with people. The slim lines of the ship and its effective rigging, make her a sportive sailing vessel that does well close hauled and at a beam reach. Below decks you will find an interior with a luxurious feeling to it. There are 9 cabins, 2 showers and 3 toilets. The enthusiastic crew on board are also the owners of the ship.
