De Bankjes Engels

8 Jachtwerven

Bench 8 Boatyards

In Breskens the drawing and building of yachts and sailing boats is as common as ‘herring with onions’. Rinus Meeusen was only a boy when he regularly accompanied his father to his boatyard. The young Rinus developed a love for building boats there. Not that things immediately went smoothly: at the age of six, he deeply cut his hand with a chisel. But that’s how he rolled into the profession. Rinus Meeusen is the creator of all the bollard benches.
