A truly exceptional DeVries motorsailer,one owner since originally built!
Grotemeid is a DeVries 50 custom made to the owner request by the reputable DeVries yard in1985 in Drimlin, outside Amsterdam, Holland. The owner personally followed the construction and once the yacht was commissed and delivered, he crossed the Atlantic back to Florida.He wanted a safe & strong, easy to handle ketch with two cabins, large pilot house salon, large galley and dining area.
