HNLMS Bonaire

HNLMS Bonaire

HNLMS "Bonaire" was a 4th class screw steamship of the Royal Netherlands Navy, now under restoration as a museum ship.

"Bonaire" was built for the Royal Netherlands Navy as a steam frigate with barquentine rig and a retractable screw, and was launched at Rotterdam on 12 May 1877.

From 1924 she served at Delfzijl as living quarters for the Dutch Nautical College, and was renamed "Abel Tasman".

After lying abandoned for many years, a restoration programme was started in 2005 at Den Helder to secure the future of the ship as a floating museum.
