Our TALL SHIPS

Our tall ships


The tall ship category is made up of high sea sailing vessels, which have been designed and constructed to be navigated in open waters under sail. The on board equipment insures maximum safety for all participating passengers, making a confrontation with bad weather and high waves look like child’s play.

In contrast to our other boat’s categories, functionality rules over comfort here: The cabins are kept rather small and simple, and are fitted in a way that, even in bad weather, everything should stay in its place. Each cabin does however have its own simple ensuite bathroom with an all in one shower and WC.

The cooperative experiences on board such as the setting of sails (and scrubbing of decks) and the common interest for the outdoors lead to a special unity within our travel groups on board of our tall ships.

The captain and his crew are all experienced sea dogs, who have plenty to tell and happily share their experiences with the guests on board. Unite with the crew and enjoy a week full of wind filled sails and seamen’s yarns without having to forgo the adventurous cycling tours through breath-taking scenery.

Characteristic features – Tallship journeys Our Tallships mostly do not fit into small fishing harbors and therefore spend the majority of their nights on anchor. This means that a dinghy transfer is necessary to get to land. Additionally a tidal difference may effect accessibility of the boat on our tours in Great Britain. In some cases it may be necessary to climb a ladder to get on/off the boat or that the use of a dinghy/tender might be necessary for embarkation/disembarkation. Surefootedness and a certain degree of agility are required to get on and off the boat. Needless to say, our tour guides will lend you a helping hand. In general: Wind, swell and tidal differences have a significant influence on a Tallship journey.
