History Doeksen ferry Midsland

The ferry Rheinland, built in 1974 for the Germand shipping company AG Ems, was used between Emden and Borkum. In 1980 the ship was lengthened so that it had more capacity. Doeksen bought the ship in 1993 to strengthen it’s fleet. The ship was deployed on the Harlingen – Vlieland / Terschelling routes. This so-called Ro-Ro ferry had a bar, buffet, ball pitt and a spacious sun deck. It could accommodate 700 passengers and 65 cars. This ship sailed the Waddenzee for no less than 27 years, which earned her the nickname ‘Grand Old Lady’. Due to the arrival of the new LNG-ferries Willem Barentsz and the Willem de Vlamingh, the outdated ship became redundant and the Friesland (1989) took over the role of reserve boat.


On April 24, 2021, the Midsland sailed across the Waddenzee for the very last time on it’s way to Greece like a thief in the night. The ship, renamed Nissos Aegina, sails after a extensive rebuilt in the Aegean Sea for shipping company Anes Ferries between Mandoudi (Evia) – Skiathos – Skopelos.

Small but detailed

The Midsland is in scale 1:1250 (XXX cm long and XXX cm wide). Like all other ship models of, the ferry was designed on the basis of the original construction drawings. The ship is painted in the Doeksen colors including beautiful decals with the ship’s name, Doekie and the well-known blue slashes. The scale model of the Midsland is perfect to place next to our scale model of the Friesland (1989)!
