Description : 


The Harlingen Harbour Crane is a Figee level luffing crane built in 1967. The crane was used until 1996 to unload timber freight from Russia and Scandinavia. The cabin is some 17 metres above the pier; the jib can reach as high as 45 metres. Ownership of the Harbour Crane was transferred in 2001 to the current owner, who required almost two years to complete the refit. Restoration was finished in 2003.
