Zeesboot

Andre, Black And White Photography, Photography

 

This is a traditional sailing boat from the Baltic Sea. It’s usually about 10-metre-long. The wide-hulled sailing boat type is known as a Haffboot. The name is derived from the type of fishing gear used, known as a zeese. The sailing boat is designed for relatively protected, shallow waters. Today zeesenboote (plural) are mainly used for leisure sailing.
