The Silhouette is a two-mast Tjalk built in Groningen in 1893. This typical Dutch boat functioned as a small barge and transported freight as peat, potatoes, wood, etc. Typically these vessels is the flat bottom, making this type of ship can maneuver easily in shallow water. Therefore, the swords also sit on the side of the boat. Every year Tjalk Contests place, including importantly the Skutsjesilen in Friesland. Silhouette currently has its permanent berth in Harlingen.
