These boats sailed for centuries on the shallow coastal waters of the Zuiderzee Sea. The Zuiderzee was a large inland sea to the north of the Netherlands. The completion in 1932 of a large dam divided it into two, creating a large inland saltwater lake called Ijsselmeeer and adding the rest of the old inland sea to the Frisian Sea. After this division no new Botters were built, and the wood and the sails were replaced by steel and motor propulsion.
An association for Botter preservation keeps several of them in their original state. CONTENTS OF THE BOTTER MODELING KIT.
