Maybe

 
Maybe, launched in 1933, was designed for round the world cruising and built by De Vries Lentsch, Amsterdam for Jan Jacob van Rietschoten. She was hidden during the Second World War and afterwards she underwent a complete refit with a new rig. Maybe took part in the first Tall Ships Race in 1956.

She sailed mainly around the Mediterranean and in the 70’s regularly crossed the Atlantic between the West Indies and the Mediterranean. In the 80’s she also sailed through the Panama Canal and up the east coast of the USA to Canada.

She was sold to the present owners in 1989 and underwent another complete restoration returning to sailing in 2007 around Scotland and then onto Spain last year.
