Snapshots of the woodwork on the Stevenaak
Below you can find some photos that will give an impression on the progress on the woodwork on the inside and outside of the Stevenaak.
Outside woodworkAll of the round logs such as the mast, leeboards and rudder are all made out of wood. The rudder is high and slim which makes the stern of the boat particularly eye catching.
The skylights and the entrance and the cockpit area are conducted with quality which could be expected for Lemsteraken. Therefore, a lot of hardwood which was used, we made the choice to use teak and mahogany. Which gives the impression of a Lemsteraak.
Interior improvementsThe inner lining is made entirely from solid mahogany with bossing panels. All the ceilings are made of solid pine boards and the walls in the cabins are built from solid tongue and groove pine planks.
Inside you will find some nice authentic details such as antique door handles at the cabins and bathrooms, electrical sockets and light switches made of bakelite which switch contact is made with the typical rich clunk.
In the mahogany countertop in the kitchen, an original tiled sink is installed. The walls around the working area are provided with handmade white tiles, some of them with small blue nautical themes, the tiles can also be found in the basin in the cabins and in the bathrooms.
Overall, the interior design features a classic and authentic look, the built-in dining table Compass adds another nautical touch.
The layoutWe have chosen for a layout with two lounges. In the head of the vessel, there is the lounge / living room and behind the kitchen with a large dining area. In between the five double cabins, two bathrooms with shower and toilet are located.
The comfortable lounge / living room is suitable to comfortably sit together or watch TV. This room is also available for meetings, with a presentation on the large built-in TV screen. During such a work unit may optionally prepare a cook the catering in the kitchen, where you can meet after the meeting and can enjoy the delicacies.
The cabins are all equipped with a sink with hot and cold water, just as you have a central heating, the temperature can be controlled individually by means of thermostat. There is ample space for clothes in the wardrobes, 220 volt sockets, among others to make use of in the mirror cabinets above the sink, for chargers, toothbrushes ...
The bathrooms are equipped with a spacious shower, a toilet, like at home, sink with hot and cold water, central heating and 220-volt sockets.
In the kitchen there is a dishwasher, a large refrigerator, electric stove, oven and a plentiful and good selection of dishes and cutlery. In addition, here is a large seating area to enjoy a meal or just to have a drink together comfortably...
The progressIn the end of 2009, the cockpit with the entrances and sliding hatches are created by Jouke Ykema at our former shipyard in Sneek. Then the ship was further expanded every winter a little by Jouke. In 2010, the lounge has been installed in the bow with lots of cabinets with paneled doors. In 2011, the cabins, the bathrooms and the laundry room are built. In 2012, the kitchen was built. In 2013 and 2014 the further expansion paused by the sale of our rental company in Sneek and the associated move to Leeuwarden.
In 2015, the living area for the skipper in the rear of the ship was created and the entire interior has been painted this year.
