You can if you never say never. When a group of new York Capital district residents set out to reconstruct the Onrust (dutch for “restless”), the first trading ship built in america, into a living (and floating) classroom, they spent 3 years using authentic 17th-century dutch building techniques to rebuild the ship to its authentic 1614 specifications. With the help of GMC, they had the capability they needed to haul materials, the resources they required to construct the engine room and the perseverance it took to bring an important part of american history back to life. so whAt does 17th-centurY shipbuilding sAY About the engineering of the gmc AcAdiA? that true craftsmanship is timeless. that the details are where you find the difference. and if you dream of building something to stand the test, there’s no substitute for professional grade. it was as true in the 17th century as it is in the 21st: the right transport can make all the difference when you’re trying to keep life on course. gmc AcAdiA. f o r m o r e o f t h e s t o r Y, s c A n t h e Q r c o d e w i t h Y o u r s m A r t p h o n e o r v i s i t g m c . c o m / A c A d i A _s h i p2
