Bring the Batavia to Land
The Batavia ship is in a crucial phase. She is an older ship, who urgently needs care. The Batavia has to get out of the water. Only then will we be able to carry out major maintenance and carry out the much-needed restoration. Bringing the ship to land not only allows the current generations to discover and experience the ship, but also preserves our maritime past for future generations. In addition to this, we can also offer a new perspective to visitors: The keel can be viewed, which doesn’t work when the ship is in water. From this point of view, the ship is even more impressive, the crafts are so abundant and the experience becomes much more impressive.
