Linssen Classic Sturdy series
In 1975, Linssen Yachts launched the first of a new generation of St. Jozef Vlet boats onto the market. Between 1975 and 1985, Jos Linssen designed a complete range of eight length sizes of St. Jozef Vlet boats (subsequently renamed Classic Sturdy) in a variety of designs.
The hull shape and styling of all these vlet boats (Sturdys) were based on the St. Jozef working boats of the 1950s as designed by Jac. Linssen Sr. It was these St. Jozef Vlet boats and the later Sturdys that laid the foundations for the Linssen brand, a byword for recognisability, consistency, reliability and value-retention.
The current generation of Classic Sturdys combines traditional and timeless lines and colours with cutting-edge technologies, the best cruising characteristics and efficient production techniques.
