Sailing Cargo Vessel 'Tres Hombres'

The Tres Hombres is originally a KFK (Kriegsfischkutter) from the German Navy in WWII. Build at the Burmeister shipyard in Swinemunde, Germany as KFK368 'Seeadler' in 1943. Hundreds of these ships were build at the time at shipyards around Europe for the German navy.


In 2008 this vessel was converted to a sailing cargoship by Fairtransport based in Den Helder, the Netherlands. Manta Marine Design advised on modification of the construction, class requirements and Naval Architecture.
