About Rob II

The period between 1968 and 1973 witnessed a host of major projects, with Feadship breaking records for the largest yachts built in the Netherlands: the 45.00m Big R surpassed the 37.54m Blackhawk in length. All Feadships from this point were motor yachts: the 23.85m Rob II in 1972 was the last sailing yacht ever built.
