SV TRES HOMBRES - Some History

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.
