I think it was an 18th birthday present for Beatrix and is still used today, part of the gift was to maintain it which caused a lot of controversy a few years ago when the costs were revealed to be so high.

It was the Royal Navy which promised in 1956 that it would pay for the operation and the maintenance of this private (not royal) sail yacht. That was their birthday gift to Princess Beatrix. That the costs would be so astronomic when the traditional wooden yacht was restored, no one could have foreseen. But since the last major restoration, in the last years of Queen Beatrix' reign, it had become silent around it. The costs are open in the Budget, but it is no news anymore.

For 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 the Royal Navy has budgetted 87.000 Euro per year for the maintenance. That is a considerable sum for such a small boat. Explanation: "a maintenance in premium quality = premium quality prices".
