Frans Dekker has built two Tent Yachts in a Bottle. These transports were originally used to carry the public. At first, these boats had a tent made of cloth. Later, the tent was changed to a "tent" of wood with glass windows. The first of his tent yachts in a bottle is from a Dutch design. In the 17th century very rich people had these yachts to entertain themselves and their friends on the water. This model has fourteen men and women (some inside the tent) and a dog. Six men are rowing the yacht and there is a pole pusher on the bow. It flies the flag of the Netherlands on the Stern.
