'Big Smile' is the finest example of professional Dutch yacht building. Designed by Henk Tingen, one of Holland’s renowned naval architects. . Henk Tingen also the chief designer for the Royal Huisman, the builders of some of the world’s finest classic luxury yachts. She is a proven cruiser, maintained continuously by professionals with quality materials. Her electronics and equipment have been upgraded when necessary. In 1984 she was returned to the Scheepswerf Kok (Boat Builder) in Vinkeveen – Holland for a complete rebuild and refit from the masthead to the keel. She was recommissioned in 1985.
In 1992 to Australia for an interim preparation refit for passage around Cape Horn via Antarctica, increased size rigging etc. Following refit - that passage was cancelled due to other commitments.
In 2011, Big Smile returned to a yard where professionals gave her a complete makeover, for all intents and purposes over 90% of this sailboat is new.
Seldom does a boat of this class, condition and heritage come onto the market – she is a very special boat.
As a genuine cruiser she has made several Atlantic passages, has cruised the Mediterranean extensively. Made passages from North America to many of the Polynesian islands in the South Pacific – to New Zealand and Australia, To Kiribati (Gilbert Islands) To Vanuatu where she took on a temporary/permanent registry.
Then to South East Asia where she has explored Borneo, Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. She took her crew to the distant Chagos Archipelago in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Spent time in the Andaman Islands.
All that time an extremely comfortable, tough, easy to sail steel cruiser.

'Big Smile' presents exceptionally well with her hull having been grit blasted and epoxy coated, then Awlgrip painted with four coats, hull. Deck and topsides, in September 2011.
