Accommodation

GUEST BERTHS: 28 RIG: Brigantine

You’ll be on board the last active, originally built brigantine in the Mediterranean and one of the last wooden windjammers that are still actively sailing. She operated as a cargo ship for almost 50 years including a world war (!) before she was discovered by a family in 1978 who have loving run her as a charter vessel returning her to an original condition.

Her Captain and family live-aboard but they have their own separate quarters. Guests can enjoy private cabins in combinations of 2-3 berth bunks. All cabins share a total of four toilets and three showers with another shower on deck for a rinse off after some sea swimming.

For Atlantic crossings and Caribbean voyages only, under 30’s have the chance for a true authentic pirate experience to stay in a hammock! Each hammock will be allocated a seamans chest for any belongings and will strung up in the saloon between 9pm and 8am.

Below decks you’ll find a gorgeous saloon, bar and eating area with a traditional wooden finish. Above decks there is a large cushioned area for relaxation, sun-bathing or sleeping beneath the stars (bring your own sleeping bag if this is something you fancy!). An alfresco dining area sits mid-ships, perfect for lunches in the sun or dinners at sunset.

All her sails are set by hand and her construction is twice as strong as compared to a normal ship of her size. She is constructed with double oaked frames and up to 13 meters long, 14 cm thick ironwood planks (azobe). Her topsides are built in the finest mahogany. She was originally launched in winter of 1921 in Italy as a pure wooden sailing ship with no engine to serve as a cargo ship. She still runs cargo trips across the Atlantic today.

This vessel maintains a full ocean classification for historical sail training and charter vessel. She actively sails 6-7 months in the Mediterranean and spent last winter crossing the Atlantic and sailing in the Caribbean.

Meals

Nicole, the culinary maestro aboard, crafts healthy, flavorful meals from local, seasonal ingredients. Whether it’s a coastal sail or ocean adventure, the menu adapts. Breakfast is daily, and six meals (included in the ticket) vary between lunch and dinner. Guests can enjoy additional meals ashore at their expense, immersing in local cuisine. If the ship is at anchor, reasonably priced boat meals are available. Each voyage offers a unique culinary experience—check for meal details. Dive into a savory journey as memorable as the maritime adventure!

Who is this trip for?

This tall ship is proudly suitable for all active holidaymakers, whether families with children or couples & solo travellers.

Tour operator

Your chance to sail with a beautiful piece of maritime history on this 100+ year old classic family-run wooden brigantine who will take you around the world from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean. The family have been at the helm since 1978. We also love that she's one of the last original windjammers that was built for active sail cargo shipping. Environmentally friendly and sustainable tourism at the heart of their voyages. By sailing together, all that participate also support the preservation of our valuable maritime tradition. You can join in onboard as voyage crew and actively participate in sailing and onboard life; all in a family atmosphere. The crew have supported expeditions and environmental research on climate change and ocean pollution for two generations. With the trademark ECOSHIP and the associated interesting projects such as cargo under sail, with our own coffee brand "VELA VELA", they maintain strong values and maritime tradition which we are excited to share with you!
