Exploring foreign countries, meeting people from all over the world and sailing magnificent sailing ships is a challenge and also a great pleasure. We are therefore very proud to make you familiar with our ships and all the services we have to offer.

All our ships comply with current international standards and are built with impressive rigging, modern materials and fully conform to the highest safety standards for passenger vessels.

Enjoy your stay on board while being looked after by our professional crew!
