Three Mast Barque Artemis

Day charters, 120 guests, 32 – 36 persons in cabins

The Artemis – named after the godess of the hunt – was built in Norway in 1926 for whaling purposes and sailed until the late 1940s in the North and South Polar Seas. In the fifties it was converted into a freighter and sailed between Asia and South America until she was no longer competitive and was taken out of service.

In 2001 the Artemis got new owners who transformed her into the elegant sailing ship she once was. In the hold, where many a whale had been skinned, you now find fourteen comfortable cabins with shower and toilet. The ship has central heating and air-conditioning; the most modern navigation and communication equipment and a small hotel kitchen that has everything you can think of. Of course all prescribed safety provisions for sailing the seven seas are present.

The Artemis satisfies even the most demanding guest with her excellent sailing qualities and her unique combination of saling tradition and modern comfort.
