Small Ships

J. R. Tolkien


J. R. Tolkien was built in 1964 in Magdeburg as a tow boat. After years of good service, she was bought by her current owners and refitted as a beautiful Sail Training Ship with traditional rigging but all the modern comforts.


J.R. Tolkien is the faster of the two sailing sisters (the second one being Loth Lorien). Apart from the charter cruises in the Baltic Sea, she takes part in impressive yacht parades as well as in one or two regattas. And she is well suited for the longer, even more adventurous, voyages.


You will sleep in double cabins, with bed linens provided (please bring your own towels). Full board includes 3 meals per day, as well as filter coffee, tea and water.

In your free time you can relax and socialize in the spacious saloon. Covered by wood paneling it has a warm and cozy ambience. Integrated into the salon is a stylish bar that even houses a piano. The saloon with bar is the meeting place on board.
