This was perhaps the first GRP boat built in Europe.  Looking for more detailed information. At this point I think I need to get the van de stadt book and hopefully it will be included in there.

Hi Sonosail,

The Pionier 9 was designed in 1957-58.
He first build a wooden "plug" that he sailed himself, before starting to build the first polyester Pioneers. The first Polyester Pioneer was finished in the summer of 1959, just in time to participate in the Flevo Race of that year. Van de Stadt sailed the race himself and won in his class.

Loa = 9.10 m.
Lwl = 7.32 m.
Beam = 2.40 m.
Draft  1.40 m.
displacement 3.30 m3 = 3.30 tons
Sailarea 41.50

Information from:
"E.G. van de Stadt, Pionier in jachtontwerpen" Authors: Willem Akkerman, Theo van Harpen en Jan Briek. Publisher: Van Wijnen, Franeker, Netherlands. ISBN 9789051942187
The book comes with a CD ROM containing all(?) his plans and designs.
E.G. van de Stadt (1910-1999) designed +/- 650 boats.

Herman Jansen, sailed around the globe in his Sounion, a Pioneer (Pionier in Dutch) and wrote a book about his journey "De horizon zeilde mee, dag na dag...". The book was also published, at the time, in the "Waterkampioen" a Dutch boating magazine. Herman Jansen set sail in July 1972 and became the first Dutch solosailer, to sail around the world.

Regards,
Gerard

Thanks very much Gerard. I'm going to just have to bite the bullet and get that Book. (even though, because of copyright issues, I wouldn't be able to use any of the drawings here. ) Van de Stadt was such a seminal figure in the history of sailboat design. Really ahead of his time in so many ways.  I guess there is an english version available too. (I think it's around $200?? though) 
I did find a so so drawing finally from an old advertisement that I may use for now.

Regards,
Randy Browning
