The koftjalk "Tromp" who had his home in Groningen until the end of the sixties was purchased by enthusiasts André Hamstra of Alertec Uitzendburo and Jelle Talsma of Shipyard Talsma after this glorious double master was disqualified for commercial shipping in 2002.
The Tromp Foundation aimed to restore the ship to its original state. The work-to-learn project helped job seekers to find a better link with the labor market. The restoration of the Tromp took place at Dry-dock Groningen.
