The Tres Hombres is originally a KFK (Kriegsfischkutter) from the German Navy in WWII. Build at the Burmeister shipyard in Swinemunde, Germany as KFK368 'Seeadler' in 1943. Hundreds of these ships were build at the time at shipyards around Europe for the German navy.
In 2008 this vessel was converted to a sailing cargoship by Fairtransport based in Den Helder, the Netherlands. Manta Marine Design (former business name) advised on modification of the construction, class requirements and did all the Naval Architecture calculations. Since 2008 the Tres Hombres has succesfully made 1 or 2 Atlantic roundtrips each year to the Carribean and back to Europe sailing fairtrade cargo!
