1939 De Valk van Ricus van de Stadt voor Bruynzeel / The Falcon by Ricus van de Stadt. In 1939 Kees Bruynzeel, director of the Bruynzeel carpentry factory in Zaandam, threw a door of plywood in the water. To prove plywood to be waterproof, Bruynzeel ordered the young designer E.G. van de Stadt to design him a sailboat for the Dutch lakes. The Falcon was the first tour boat that was manufactured industrially. In 1979 Laus van den Berg had the idea to manufacture the Falcon of polyester.
