Those who had money in the period between the world wars, bought themselfs a so called Bakdekker. This is a yacht with a long foredeck under which usually is a small cabin with sofa beds, toilet and galley. The engine is situated in the open stern. The Bakdekkers are well known for their beautiful sheer line and their flared bow.
