History lifeboat class Javazee (KNRM color scheme)
The KNRM (Koninklijke Nederlandse Redding Maatschappij) was created in 1991 by a merger between the KNZHRM (Koninklijke Noord- en Zuid-Hollandsche Redding-Maatschappij) and the KZHMRS (Koninklijke Zuid-Hollandsche Maatschappij tot Redding van Schipbreukelingen). After the merger, the KNZHRM and KZHRMS lifeboats were given the same new KNRM house style. The same applies to the ships Koningin Juliana (1963), Javazee (1967) and De Zeemanspot (1973).
The new KNRM house style is characterized by a lighter blue and gray color for the ships of the Javazee type. In 2006, the Javazee was the last conventional lifeboat that went out of service. Nowadays all ships of this type have a museum function. The lifeboats have maintained their latest KNRM livrey.
The Javazee model version is 1.68 cm long and 0.37 cm wide. Just like all ships from BFT1250.nl, the ship model was designed on the basis of the original building plans. The color scheme of this model are the new KNRM colors. We also have a version available in the original KZHRMS color scheme of the Javazee class and President Jan Lels class .
