Model Valkvlet of 11.30m with design by Th. Gillissen, built in the Netherlands in 1978 by Van der Valk, has been in the last 15 years the property of a Dutch couple who, already retired, sailed every year during the 3 months of summer by diverse rivers and canals in Europe, especially in France.
Now in the Douro River, rebaptized as Arraes in a simple tribute to the men who over the course of almost two centuries crossed the Douro River in command of the Rabelo Boats, overcoming the obstacles, aggressiveness and perilous, dangers of a Rio not yet tamed by dams and that few people remember.

📅 Navigating the Arraes is possible ... In any month, day or hour, unless climacteric humors out of time, the natural order of the Seasons or the exaltation of Rio do not allow it.
