Wikipedia gives on the ship:
The JACOB MEINDERT was originally an icebreaking tug named OLDEOOG. It was purchased at auction by Willem Sligting who, when he first saw it, realised it could make a fast sailing vessel. It was relaunched in 1989 as a two masted topsail schooner.
29 September 2012 It lost both masts in strong breeze, 6 at the Beaufort scale, north of Terschelling. No casualties and was towed to the safety of the harbour in Harlingen.
2013 Was she sold to? And sails now in the Mediterranean.

2019 Is for sale in the Mediterranean still under the name JACOB MEINDERT. Not any info but her web-site is down.
Mr. Erhard Jung.
