Unique history of the  Gentleman’s Launch Delphine

The Delphine was built in 1915 at the Stofberg shipyard in Mijdrecht. When she was launched was given the name Caramba. Now renamed Delphine. The first owner was Mr. Teupken from The Hague. He was also chairman of the Dutch Motorboot Club. He had deployed the Caramba to serve the Red Cross during the First World War. After a number of wanderings, the Caramba ended up in Amsterdam and was renamed Delphine.

So why do they call it a lauch?

Originally a launch or a long-boat was the biggest boat carried by a warship or merchant vessel. The word comes from the Spanish word “lancha”(“barge”) and was derived from “lancar” (velocity without effort)
