During the following years, the Alliantie was modernised. They built in a motor and the skipper’s accomodation was altered. Because of the strong motor she didn’t need masts anymore. The sailingship Alliantie became a motor vessel. In the following years they even enlarged the hull and planted a steeringhouse on the back of the ship.
When Rien Lipke bought the Alliantie in 1996, she was still in a very good condition, because the hull was built so properly. Rien decided to restore her in full grace and gave her a new sailing plan. They decided to remove the hull extension, wrote a sailingplan and gave her her masts back. The steelwork was done in Urk while the inside accomodation was changed in Elburg. Rien did an extensive part of this work and was able to take into account all of the Dutch safety- and quality precautions, while trying to make the ship als coosy, comfortable and safe as possible for his guests. The Alliantie is a ship which can be sailed actively and passively. Rien wanted the ship to be “easy to learn” and “nice to handle”.
