Charter sailing becomes a professional business; the skipper becomes a host. Others make a living from the supporting business, producing and repairing sails, masts and leeboards, or start a booking agency.
Rob Goud is not a sailor himself, so he hires Udo Verlaan as his skipper. Udo takes the ship on hire purchase in 1990. With his partner Hennie Varwijk he makes a lot of technical improvements, like a new engine and central heating. From Monnickendam they sail the IJsselmeer and Wadden Sea for many years with their -often returning- guests.
