Two Sentijn 37IQ's sailing to the Azores

This year our company OceanPeople celebrates it's 15th birthday. Coming summer we organise the Azores Adventure Cruise 2016, in which there are 15 participating sailing yachts. Beside the leading vessel Shaula, our Sentijn 37IQ, a second Sentijn 37IQ Anne will be accompanying us.

We will be cruising for 3 months along the French, Spanish and Portugese coasts, and make the crossing to Ponta Delgada, the first stopover on the Azores Archipelago.Of course we will visit Horta and Café Sport, the famous place to gather on the harbourside of Faial.

You can join us on our blog oceanpeople.blogspot.com.

evokes a visitor at the HISWA boat show enthusiastic.

After she had made her round by participating yachts at the HISWA Boat Show, she gives me a big smile and thumbs up. And there were many visitors who made compliments about the new Sentijn 37IQ "Anne". A yacht that stands out, both in appearance and quality.

Were you there as well? And are you curious about the sailing characteristics of the Sentijn 37IQ?

"She sails as she looks", we say. But you''ll probably would like to try it yourself. So please feel free to contact us for a test sail from Herkingen, on Lake Grevelingen.


Location E.09 Amsterdam In water Boatshow

Last months we've built a new Sentijn 37IQ. During the Hiswa Boatshow in Amsterdam Marina, from September 1 - 6, we'll be present to show you this sailing yacht.

The owners have chosen for the modern look of antracite hull, light grey deck and black painted Seldén mast and boom. The interior is also light and modern with white washed oak flooring and bright orange upholstery.
Navigation equipment is B&G.

The standard batterypack of the Sentijn 37IQ nowadays is Lithium, and interior lighting is LED.  

The starboard aftcabin has the design of a wetlocker for sailing gear and plenty of storage room for e.g. folding bikes.  

You're invited to step aboard for a total view of all the details.


The building of a new Sentijn 37IQ has started

In the last months of 2014 we've signed the contract with customers for a new Sentijn 37IQ. Preparations are in full swing.
The molds are polished. We work with a new sandwich material: PET, as the bottles. This has better qualities than PVC foam for the core of the sandwich. The Volvo Penta D240 with saildrive has been delivered. As well as the many small parts that make the boat complete.
The sails are ordered from Ullman Sails to Brouwershaven. The sprayhood will be delivered by Allround Zeilmakerij from Zierikzee.
Colors for exterior are defined: Sentijn 37IQ no. 2 will be a twin sister to Shaula, Sentijn 37IQ no. 1, which makes us feel very proud. Yet there are some differences such as new type of Jefa steering and the starboard side aft cabin will be a spacious lazarette with a wet gear compartment, storage for provisions and for two folding bicycles.

The coming months we'll keep you informed.


Viva La Vida was for sale!

Nice pre-owned Sentijn 37 from 1995.

Fast and comfortable yacht

This Sentijn 37 is a unique yacht: after Jager, the yacht owned by designer Dick Koopmans himself, this is the first hull from the mould in 1995. This is the Sentijn we fell in love with after racing  her on the IJsselmeer in the late nineties: fast, nice lines, very comfortable. Viva La Vida has been maintained very well through the years and has been modified and renewed to keep her up-to-date. She sails easily with a crew of one or two.

Asking price: € 89.000,-
