The Frisian Maritime Museum is a versatile museum showing the history of Frisian shipping from the 17th until the 20th century. Apart from the Frisian shipping and shipbuilding, the museum presents a picture of water sports in Sneek and the Southwest of Friesland and from the 2nd of June until the 2nd of September the museum will hold an exposition about 50 years of Vripack.
The exhibition bears the familiar name ‘No Nonsense Go Anywhere’ and paints a picture of the history of Vripack by using historical designs, photos and lots of ship models showing the total design process to the smallest detail.
The onset of the computer and the revolution that went with it, as well as the ingenuity and the persistence to seek innovation in the designs provides a unique reflection of the realization of Vripack as we all know it today.
The exhibition also focuses on the early designs of Vripack. The first series Aquanaut motor yachts and Doggersbank were very successful. However, the international breakthrough, commercial vessels and ships like Turmoil and Beothuk are also given the proper attention. The complexity of the process that is required for the development of a complete building kit are highlighted by examples from Vripack's engineers, naval architects and designers.
