Excessive Maintenance Costs for Queen Mother’s Yacht

Confidential documents have revealed that maintenance costs for the Queen Mother’s sailing yacht De Groene Draeck came to 1.5 million euro from 2004-2015, enough to buy two brand new yachts.  Since 2012, the actual maintenance costs were twice the amount budgeted.  Experts said that the maintenance done by the Dutch Navy wharf has been very inefficient.  The yacht is used for only about 100 hours each year.
