Freddy Franssens

Sad news from Breskens: last Saturday, 1 July, Hall BV’s senior rigger FREDDY FRANSSENS died at sea during a tragic accident.

Freddy (71) was part of the crew on board S/Y "Capella" owned by FRANS MAAS, designer and builder of the successful range of Standfast yachts.
Also Frans (79) and a third crew member (at the age of 18 and still missing) lost their lives during this accident.
Three crew members were rescued and are now recovering from hypothermia.

Freddy joined our team 36 years ago and he was well respected for his craftsmanship and perseverance. We will miss him!
Our hearts are with the families and their friends.

For those who would like to express condolences, please reply to: or post to Hall Spars, Deltahoek 42, 4511 PA Breskens.

After receipt we will hand over all received cards and forward the received emails to the families Franssens and Maas.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday 8 July at Deltahoek 26, Breskens from 13.30.

Your sincerely,

Management and staff,

Hall BV
