The S.S. Christiaan Brunings is a museum steam ship, preserved at the Vereeniging Nederlandsch Historisch Scheepvaartmusuem in The Netherlands where she is kept in full working order, providing trips to the public during summer season. She was constructed of steel in 1900 as tender and pilot boat to the Dutch Icebreakers and to this end she is fitted as a coastal Icebreaker in her own right.
