This classic sailing yacht has been built in 1948 by Ernst Hatecke shipyard in Germany. Her first owner was Dirk Schlobohm, an entrepreneur from Bremerhaven, Northern Germany, who was owning one of the most successful private coffee factories in Germany at that time. Schlobohm was a passionate yachtsman himself and built the yacht as a real racing yacht, in order to meet with the standards and requirements of regattas: fast, robust and easy to handle. He sailed the yacht successfully in various regattas in the North- and Baltic Sea. In the early 60ies, the boat was sold and served the German Navy as a training ship, before she was decomissioned and retired from service in 2009. The young naval cadets were trained before going on bigger ships such as Gorch Fock. The navy also appreciated the distinguished sailing characteristics of the boat and was regularly partaking in races, which the crew specifically trained for. A demanding issue for both man and boat, always close to the wind and under full sails. Since autumn 2010 the yacht is privately held and berthed on the Baltic Sea.

LAYOUT AND ACCOMMODATION
The yacht's layout impresses with a very spacious and cozy saloon that can seat easily 6 to 8 guests around a big table on a large U-shaped sofa and another long sofa on the opposite side. On star and port side the saloon has got various overhead lockers, some closed with mahogany fronts others with security glass doors and shelves, that are painted white inside which contrasts nicely to the honey coloured mahogany and the dark cream canvas. On starboard a desk gives further storage place. The floor is covered with a loose carpet. A big skylight illuminates the room by day, and ceiling and original wall lamps of the 50s bring in the right atmosphere. Separated by a door, the owner's cabin is situated between the saloon and the fore peak. The owner's cabin disposes of a double berth on port with voluminous drawers underneath and several hanging lockers and drawers with a small seat in the middle on starboard side. The new wooden mahogany floor panels offer further storage underneath. All catches, hooks, drawer pulls are of brass. A skylight is situated in the middle of the room. The fore peak has got two hanging lockers for wet suits and safety equipment, a new installed three level wooden rack with boxes that serves well as storage for food, tool boxes etc. and is further accessible through a fore hatch. Left and right of the companionway there are two single berths, with broad shelves and storage space underneath. The visible restored mahogany hull walls shine in warm deep colour and contrast to the white ceiling panels. A further bunk bed is in the fore peak and two persons can also be accommodated on the saloon sofas where the backsides can be folded up to extend the matress for better comfort. The galley is located opposite to a big, foldeable chart table with foldeable stool. The galley itself is equipped with a cardanic gas oven and stove and a sink with a brass hand pump and water tap. A big cupboard with sliding doors is spacious enough for all kind of crockery as well as food. Underneath the mahogany working surface a base cabinet gives space for cutlery and pot and pan.
The toilet room comes with a powerful Rheinstrom manual pump WC and a sink with brass tap. Above and behind the toilet a closed locker, shelves and an open locker with a hanging rack allows for storage of any kind of bath and other utensils.
The restored aft peak got a new floor and is a very practical storage for fenders, ropes, tool boxes etc. A new Teak cockpit flooring enables easy access to the engine from above. The engine, encased in a wooden box can also be reached from inside.
The clear deck is nicely framed and structured by varnished deck frames, king planks, along with the varnished deckhouse, skylights and fore hatch.

RESTORATION AND REFIT
During the last seven years since the yacht is again privately owned it has been undertaken a comprehensive and profound restoration. Despite her age the yacht basically still got the original layout and also the interior was almost completely conserved. Most of the compartments has been stripped bare to the hull, furniture, ceilings, floors been completely removed in order to derust for anti-corrosion works of hull and bilges before insulating with aluminum laminated rock wool. In the restored areas all wooden parts were properly refurbished and varnished and new wooden floors were laid.
The yacht got new pipes and hoses and a modified bilge pump and grey water system in form of an automatic grey water tank, to keep the bilges all dry and prevent from corrosion.
The engine got a complete overhaul in 2011. The engine room got insulated and encased from outside and got partly new special engine room insulation.
Hull and cockpit saw some steel works, where small plates were exchanged and not used outlets were closed for safety reasons.
The yacht is well maintained and her appeal lies in her elegant lines as well as in the fact that her clean set up allows for sailing her by two persons only.
Together with her layout that stands out through an impressive spacious saloon makes her an easy going and very comfortable cruising yacht where one can feel at home any time.
The fact that she has got a steel hull and is insulated also allows to stay aboard in winter times or even to explore winter in Northern Scandinavia. In the summer the temperature inside is also a steady pleasant one. The current owners enjoyed many nice trips and longer aboard stays even in winter.
