The Avatar was built in 1941 in Wolgast, Germany, as a KFK Kotter under number 401. KFK Kotters were small naval vessels, built for speed, but looking like fishing boats to mislead the enemy. The ships were built on steel beams with a wooden hull which made them less vulnerable to magnetic mines.

When the war ended the ship was brought to Spaarndam in the Netherlands where in 1957 the original wooden hull was replaced by a steel one. From then on she sailed the North Sea as a fishing boat and built a reputation for being a very fast, seaworthy vessel. Later on she sailed under the name Grietje Maria (IJMUIDEN 64) until the fishing fleet was reduced. After that the Grietje Maria was used for sport fishing for several years until she was sold in 1998 with the intention of turning her into a charter vessel. This never materialized and in 2010 André Hanzens bought the ship to rebuild her as a topsail schooner.

What was once a kotter has today been turned into a beautiful schooner. Like Twister, the Avatar is completely refurbished as a luxury sailing ship with the charm and elegance of a yacht.
