Waarschip halftonner

The 870 was built between 1971 and 1977, simultaneously with the 600 and 725 (quarter ton). Relatively few have been built (just under 100). Within the Waarschip association 25 members have an 870, this is about 5% of the membership (end 2000). Like the 725, the 870 owes its nickname “Half Tonner” to the IOR competition class for which it was designed. This is by the way not the only resemblance to the 725: if you keep the sail plan of both ships next to each other you will see that only the scale differs. Here too we are dealing with a boat that makes everything right.

More interior space

The disadvantage of the 725 is that little attention has been paid to living comfort inside The designer has rectified this with the 870. It has a forepeak, living area with two long benches and possibly a table, a full galley and chart table. They are not much offered for sale.
