A.P. Overwater, Strijen

A great fancier with phenomenal long distance pigeons! For several decades, A.P. Overwater has been racing pigeons with enormous succes at the 1000km classics. He has become known at home and abroad for his extremely strong “Turbodiesels van den Oudendijk”. His pigeons didn’t get that nickname for free, that nickname was earned by them … They are all beautifully built, softly plumed, real highclass long distance pigeons that originate from two extremely strong pigeon strains of Peter van de Eijnden and Bas Batenburg.

In recent years there is a pigeon that really stands out and that is the NL12-1597833 alias DE BARCELONA TURBO which in 2016 the 118th National Barcelona and in 2017 the 57th National Barcelona knew to score. At his first Barcelona in 2015 he won the 101st National Barcelona and he finished Barcelona in 2018 as 264th National! With his four outstanding Barcelona prizes he won teh prestigious title: 1st Golden Barcelona Ace pigeon ZLU 4yrs! DE BARCELONA TURBO also flew successfully Perpignan three times after Barcelona and on that flight became 23rd Ace pigeon in the Netherlands at the ZLU over the last three years at Perpignan. As a yearling he scored a super prize at the Bergerac midday release with prize 20 against 7.655 pigeons in the National sector 2. In 2014 he won a good prize at Agen old birds and a late prize at Narbonne. He was bred in Strijen from a son of the SUPER AS from 2007 and a daughter of DE FERRARI from 2008 and then we talk about the core and the top of the colony of A.P. Overwater.

In 2017, A.P. scored a number of very early ZLU prizes National, of which the 3.National and 3.International won by THE SURPRISE 061 on Narbonne speaks the most to the imagination. 

The 844 OF THE SUPER AS turns out to be a super breeder of the first order, because a full sister of the 3.Nat Narbonne wins 24.NPO Agen S2 and 48.Nat Marseille ZLU in 2017, while another daughter of this new top breeder 37.Nat Agen ZLU 2017 against 5.935 pigeons wins.

In 2017, A.P. Overwater won the 1st Nominated ZLU Cup Interprovincial SNZH (Noord-Holland and Zuid-Holland) championship and also became 1st Emperor ZLU Cup SNZH of both extremely strong provinces at the ZLU.

The next list of top prizes won in 2017 testifies to the big class of this top loft at the marathon:

3.Nat Narbonne, 6.Int Narbonne, 3.Nat Narbonne hens,

16.Nat Agen ZLU yearlings, 93.Nat Agen ZLU yearlings

37.Nat Agen ZLU old

46.Nat Marseille, 48.Nat Marseille

57.Nat Barcelona

To show the strength of this loft, the most beautiful references:

Ad Pegels Numansdorp, 1.Nat S2 Dax, fastest of all sectors (father A.P. Overwater)

M.Vonk Hendriks Ido Ambacht, 1.Nat S2 Bergerac (mother A.P. Overwater)

C.J. Wijntjes Oud Beijerland, 1.Nat S2 Cahors (line DURE INTEELT A.P. Overwater)

It is the best proof that his strain inherits amazingly well and gives a little extra in many lofts.


In 2018, A.P. had a racing season as almost never before! His birds were in a super shape and A.P. was very succesful. Highlights of the past season were:

1st National Dax S2 in 2018 with MISS TURBO DAX

1st National & 1st International Ace Barcelona 4 yrs with DE BARCELONA TURBO


This wonderful auction from A.P. Overwater is an excellent opportunity to refresh the own breeding loft with a “bit of fresh milk in the coffee”, as late Marathon-icon Antoon van der Wegen could tell, … success assured because the breeders of AP are almost all very much related to each other. In the last decade(s) AP has built an excellent inbred strain of high quality pigeons!


Pigeoncom is very proud to organize this TOP auction for A.P. Overwater and we believe that there are a few unique youngsters available, like:

a daughter of DE BARCELONA TURBO


a daughter of MISS TURBO DAX


Note: Sex of the birds from 2018 believed to be correct by A.P. Overwater, but not 100% guaranteed.
