rond-de-wereld-zeiler OR solo-zeiler (if he/she is very famous...)


Explanation:
Have found different spellings (with and without hyphens)

SEE:
Ingericht voor een wereldreis, waar de huidige eigenaar zich niet aan waagt. Sterk gebouwd door de vorige wereldzeiler maar heeft nu wat zorg nodig /

Fully equipped for an abandoned worldcruise by the desillusioned owner. "Bon Bini" needs some care here and there, but is very strongly built by the previous world-circumnavigator.

solozeiler


Explanation:
According to the latest Dutch spelling this word should be written without a hyphen.
There is not a literal translation for circumnavigator but whenever someone sails single handed around the world the Dutch press is using the word 'solozeiler'.
