Introducing Johan Huiber, a man with a grand ambition! Regardless of your religious beliefs, you can admire Johan’s unwavering commitment. Hailing from Noord-Holland in the Netherlands, Johan is a contractor who has always been captivated by the sea, even from his early years.

Johan found God at 24, and after nine years, he dreamt of a flood destroying the Netherlands. Seeing it as a sign, he chose to construct a boat similar to Noah’s ark.

Johan began studying Noah’s ark in 1992. He read the Bible, consulted reference books, and watched movies. From 2005 to 2007, he constructed his initial ark, which measured 70 meters in length and required a million euros.

He navigated it across the Netherlands for more than three years.

Johan didn’t stop there. In 2013, he finished a larger project: Johan’s Ark! It took four years to build with seven floors. The ark is a full-scale display featuring Bible stories, rides, a cinema, and more.

The price of the structure is more than 4 million euros and it is placed on a steel platform consisting of 21 barges.

The ark is huge: 119 meters in length, 30 meters in width, and 23 meters in height.

Over 280,000 people visited in four years. The place has animal statues, two movie theaters, and a restaurant. It has been open to everyone since 2012.

Johan’s initial plan was to sail the ark to Brazil, but it didn’t work out.

He plans to bring it to Israel and is seeking donations to fund the $1.3 million cost, since the ark is not motorized and would require tugboats for transportation.

Johan’s amazing creation deserves much respect. Just picture yourself on a real ark! If you find Johan’s dedication impressive, share it! 🚢🌊.
