Vlotburg

IMO : n/a

Build : 1924 by De Haan & Oerlemans, Heusden in the Netherlands, nr ?? as Jolea

Are you fascinated by the middle ages?? Dungeons, castles, knights in shining armor & beautiful princesses (maybe even in distress) ?? Then this might the ship for you: a castle-ship. A floating castle purposely build for defending the water rich countries of the Netherlands, Belgium & Germany. Nah, just kidding, she is actually a museum, build by some enthusiasts and exhibiting all kinds of artifacts from the middle ages and sailing around in aforementioned countries, visiting cities all over the place.  The ship itself is already an artifact as she is build in 1924, which is actually quit astonishing. But I can’t shake the thought of her being the wicked  & haunted home of an evil witch in a certain middle age-based fairytale.

Or even better: she is the ugly dragon that actually never existed back in those days but still keeps popping up in the stories of those days.
