De Gebroeders, Dutch for The Brothers, is a Friesian Skûtsje, a small form of Tjalk, built in Heeg, Friesland in 1912 - the same year as The Titanic. The boat is built from rivetted iron, is 17.12 metres long by 3.70 metres beam. It's mast is around 17 metres high, but is counterweighted to allow it to pass easily under bridges. The vessel weighs 25 tons, has a flat bottom with a draft of 90 cm. It was built as a commercial cargo sailing barge and carried 32 tons, mainly of sand and gravel. At that time there was no engine, so when there was no wind the family donned harnesses and towed the boat.
Today life's a bit easier as it has a 100 hp diesel engine, fitted when its yacht conversion was done in 1972. It also has an electric flush toilet, tiled shower, washing machine and tumble dryer, espresso machine, combi microwave-oven-grill, two fridges, a gas hob, CD/MP3 and even a vacuum cleaner. What works when is a function of pontoon power and that from the solar panels and inverter.
