Sailboats Koopmans News for sale
Koopmans Design 515 is under sail. She made her maiden trip to Norway. The owners are very happy with the result. They did the finish from aluminium hull to ready to sail boat by them self. It was a challenge to design this boat for them. They previous had a new build 13 m long keeled steel Koopmans design Calista for 25 years and 100.000 miles. Going for a more modern hull in aluminium is then a big change. They report excellent sailing and are much more connected to the outside world with the deckhouse.
Koopmans Design 503 is afloat. I did the stability test in Zeebrugge, Belgium where she was finished by Jan van Damme.
Jan did a good job. With a lightweight but classic looking interior she floats 1 cm above the calculated waterline. The sails are under construction at Wittevrongel. I hope we will have a test sail soon.
