Peter Prins is now the proud owner of the Onrust. Already in his youth he was drawn to the water as a magnet. By the age of sixteen
he was fully qualified to teach surfing and sailing. After secondary school he sailed as a maat on a tjalk, and having done the nautical college he sailed the seven seas as a shipsengineer. By the time it was time
to “settle”, he started working for a firm (Nectar International bagging services with main office in London), bagging up mainly food aid. It brought him all over the world, from Libya to Mozambique.
Still the water kept drawing and back in the Netherlands he returned to charter sailing. He is married, has two children and lives
(as you would expect) on a houseboat in Enkhuizen.
Since 1990 he is a full time skipper, of which 6 years owning the “Hoop Geleid Ons”(may the hope guide us), his previous ship. And he
just started with the Onrust in 2002.
