  • Description


    We are sorry but for later dates we cannot confirm any stay at the moment. But you can ask anyhow and we will message you if we need crew spontaneaously.

    This is a traditional, three-masted tall ship, 52 metres long, run by a non-profit organisation.

    In the summer months we do sail training with school classes and other youth groups, in the winter time the ship is berthed in Hamburg-Harburg and we do all the maintenance work! Most of it we do ourselves - we, that is a bunch of sailors who are somehow addicted to this old ship.

    In winter time we have plenty of space, as there is no group on board, so normally there are 3 to 15 people on board working on different projects to keep this fantastic ship and project running.

    If you have sailing/craft skills (or learn them in the winter time on board) you could my be also join us as part of the crew in the summer months on the baltic sea!

  • Help


    As a traditional ship with a workshop we have almost every craft on board, so you will learn a lot about working with steel (and rust :) ), wood, ropes or sails besides the daily housework like cooking and cleaning we do shared.

    In the winter time we need to remove a lot of rust. But there are also some more complex tasks going on, so you will be able to learn a lot, depending on what we do at the time you come. (For example putting on the sails in spring)
