Tall Ships

Thalassa

History

Built as a fishing hull the Thalassa was rigged in traditional manner in 1995 as the barkentine Thalassa. The foremast is square-rigged and the large mast and mizzenmast are gaff rigged. In the past decade or so she has sailed in the Baltic, to Spain, the Canary Islands and all around England and Scotland. The Thalassa can be found in one or more legs of the Tall Ships Races each year.

Ship

Race in style. The Baltic is the Thalassa’s home ground, but this ship is more than capable to sail every imaginable sea. This 3-masted vessel is super strong and seaworthy, and can sail up to 13 knots. In any wind, there is always something to do on the deck of Thalassa. You are either setting or reducing the sails, or engaged in some group activities during one of the International Exchanges on board.

Accommodation

This vessel is rigged according to century-old traditions, but equipped according to the latest safety-regulations and comfort. This results in a nice comfortable ship with a cosy saloon, a reading corner, a well equipped galley and a spacious bar where you can have a drink. You sleep in luxurious two-person cabins (15), each fitted with a private shower and wash basin. The lavatories (9) are communal.
