Sailing the dream

Our 'purple lady' offers an unforgettable experience.

In 1902, the original fishing boat was built out of wood. Fifty-five years later they replaced the wooden hull by a steel one. This allowed the ship to re- enter in 1981, but this time as a modern fishing vessel. Designed only to transport other ships fish catches at lightning speed to the fish auction- she quickly retired after that. After she has been rebuilt to the schooner she is now, she started sailing under the name Twister, her speed since then proves the ship to be one of the fastest sailing ships of the Northern sailing area.

On deck there are two tables with benches where you can sit comfortably. Inside there is the opportunity to chill in the bar or on the couches in the wheelhouse. There are seven cabins with two to four beds each. With two showers and toilets and a nice galley she has all you need.

In the summer she will attend various sailing events on the Baltic. It is also possible to charter her for a voyage.
In the winter she crosses the ocean with a group of enthusiastic adventure-seekers. If you are looking for a nice journey around the Canarian or Caribbean Islands, you can sail along on one of the island trips for seven or more days.
