Rembrandt van Rijn is a Vanuatu-flagged three-masted schooner currently employed for Arctic cruises by owner and operator Oceanwide Expeditions. She was built in 1924 as a fishing lugger and has served as a coaster and schooner under the flags of the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, and Panama. The ship has been lengthened three times, fitted with four different engines, and has had a change of IMO Number during her career on the seas.

History[edit]

Rembrandt van Rijn was built in 1924 as the fishing lugger Jacoba by Gebroeders Boot, Leiderdorp, South Holland, Netherlands, for Gebr. Bloot, Katwijk, South Holland. She was launched in November of 1924. Her port of registry was Katwijk, and she was allocated the registration KW146. In 1929, Jacoba was sold to K.K. Jagemann and R.S. Karstens, Hamburg, Germany. She was converted to a motor vessel and was fitted with a diesel engine. Jacoba was then renamed Anna Marta, after which the Code Letters RGPQ were allocated.[1] Her port of registry at the time was Hamburg.[2]

On 18 September, 1929, Anna Marta was sold to R.S. Karstens. From 1931 to April 1933, she was operated under the management of H. Böse, Altona, Germany.[3] Management then passed to Heinscke & Co.[4] In May 1933, a new diesel engine was fitted. In January 1934, her Code Letters were changed to DJFI. In March 1933, Anna Marta was lengthened and rebuilt as a three-masted schooner at Kiel.[1] By 1937, Anna Marta was again operated by R. Karstens.[5] She was rebuilt again in 1939.[1]

In 1949, Anna Marta's Code Letters were changed to DGCL. In April 1951, she was lengthened at Stade, West Germany, and had a new engine in July. On 19 May, 1952, Anna Marta was sold to M. Karstens and H. Pape, Hamburg, West Germany. Ownership passed to Karstens & Pape on 13 August, 1954. Another new engine was fitted in 1957.[1]

On 26 January, 1962, Anna Marta was sold to H.E. Hansen, Marstal, Denmark, and was renamed Minde.[1] Her port of registry was Marstal, and the Code Letters OZFX were allocated.[6] With the introduction of fixed Lloyd's Register numbers in the late 1960s, Minde was allocated 5235715, which later became her IMO Number. In 1971, she was sold to A.K. Nielsen, Broager, Denmark, and was renamed Klaus D.[1] Her port of registry was Egersund, but her Code Letters remained unchanged.[7] On 22 March, 1974, her home port was changed to Broager,[1] although she remained with Egersund as her port of registry.[8] During one of these rebuilds, the ship was derigged and returned to being a motor vessel. Klaus D was a refrigerated cargo vessel.[9]

In 1984, Klaus D was sold to A.M. Tichelaar, Leeuwarden, Netherlands. In August 1985, she was sold to Stichting Werkgelegenheid Projecten, Groningen, Netherlands, and was renamed Enno Doedens Star. Two new diesel engines were fitted to her in 1986. This was followed by a rebuild to a three-masted schooner at Vlissingen, Zeeland, Netherlands, in 1993. She was renamed Rembrandt van Rijn and reflagged to Panama. The call sign 3FVE7 was allocated. From 1994–96, Rembrandt van Rijn operated cruises to Spitsbergen, Norway. In 1998 or 1999 a different IMO Number, 8941808, was allocated. She was sold in October 1998 to Balder Nieuwland B.V., Vlissingen, and placed under the management of Oceanwide Nautical Services B.V. Rembrandt van Rijn operated cruises between Panama and the Galapagos Islands from 1998–2001. In 2007, she was laid up at Ghent, Belgium.[1]

In December 2011, Rembrandt van Rijn was reflagged to Vanuatu.[1] She was given her current call sign, YJRJ3, and the MMSI Number 576988000.[10] Rembrandt van Rijn has a crew of 12 and can accommodate 33 passengers.[11]
