After two years of Silver Status, Aruba International Regatta has obtained the Gold status of Sailors for the Sea – Clean Regatta’s. Join in the effort to reduce the Aruba International Regatta’s footprint and stimulate sustainable development. Keep the beach, the sea and the air clean: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle!


The Seagull is for sale! The entire sales revenue of this boat will be donated to the “Stichting Youth Watersports Aruba” ( idea for this project came from Yair Lichtenstein and Rik van der Vaart, both avid amateur boat builders. The Regatta team thought it a great idea. Kooyman donated the 1/4″ plywood sheets needed for the hull and two 1×8 planks needed for the railing and keel.

Aruba Regatta main sponsor Studio Advisory donated the rest of the materials needed, the fiber, epoxy, consumables, paint, varnish and deck plates. Yair and Rik started the build in August 2013 and through the years, between life’s happenings, the job was finished in July 2017. The total amount of build hours are estimated at 350 manhours. Find out more about this magnificent project at and contact Rik at Rik(at) to discuss details of this magnificent boat and the price!
