I've had many ships in my life, to name the extremes I've had a ketch of 54 tons 'Passaten of Grenaa, 'and at the other end a Banner 28 races, but the boat I have had the  longest is a Swedish MAXI 95 with the name 'Niobe'. I grew up in Ringkøbing and sailed for half a lifetime on the Ringkøbing fjord and the North Sea. in my younger years I dived from a little Tug 'LilleTut' by many of the Danish coast, then I bought a monstrosity of a steel boat "Kishon" there after a fire was for sale in Odense, read its history here, I worked on it for 8 years, got a nice boat out of it, but I longed for a sailboat so I therefore bought an old HURLY 28 'Moonwake'  I had it for a couple of years, then I bought a Banner 28 Racer 'Excess', but after a while considering how much time I used i to kneel when I 'peeled potatoes, so I bought a MAXI 95th And lately I've bought a Najad 34 Fortuna

Trade wind of Grenaa Had near ruined me but I was much richer experience Along with a good friend I went to the port of Grenaa lay her poor and shabby, we asked a man on the pier who owned the boat, it was him, we asked what the cost, he said.! yes - I can not give it away but 500 million and it is yours, here we ought to ha 'been suspicious, but no we  bought.!

In year 1985 I had through a half year or so, been across most of Europe after a Maxi 95, it was not easy in those years, prices in Denmark was completely impossible, Sweden was not much better, only in France and Germany, the prices for my pocketbook, shipment from France was pretty high so I concentrate my search in Germany. I'd really like to have a neat and well maintained boat so it meant so much what equipment and electronics were on board, I found exactly what I was looking at Niobe who was waiting for me in the north German city Travemynde she had just sailed Very little had been at the hall every winter, and the engine was cared for by professionals. It was purchased and in April 1986 I sailed with good friends' help, home to Ringkøbing, it was a long infatuation we owned Niobe in 21 years. Niobe was sold in spring 2007 and is now sailing on Jegindø
