Zyclon * 

Zyklon (Z4 N°36) Design : Published 1937 



The Zyklon called Zyclon 
Peter Vandenhirtz has owned Zyclon for twenty-five years. Some of his adventures with her were told in the Autumn 2015  issue of Crusising Yachts; By The Surgeons Eye. The photograph above, taken in 2015, shows her ashore in her shed in Ghent, Belgium. In 2019 Peter passed her on to a young Brazilian chap, Maurillo Souza, living in Gent who had worked with Jan Vandamme, restoring wooden boats in Zeebrugge. Looking for a project of his own, Peter offered his Zyclon. I'm about to email Maurillo to make him aware of the HBA.
