The barquentine Atlantis was built in a Hamburg shipyard in 1905 to serve as a lighthouse ship at the Elbe in a place where the construction of a lighthouse was not possible. After 70 years of service in the “Buitenelbe”, she was given a second life as a sailing ship. The underwater hull of the Atlantis has a classic sailing ship design. This was the reason why the ship was completely restored in 1984 and fitted with a barquentine rig.
This means that the foremast of the ship is rigged transversely and the other masts longitudinally.
The Frisian Tall Ship Company took over Atlantis in 2005 and brought her up to the level of luxury and comfort for which the company is renowned. Of course, the traditional look that makes the ship so popular has been retained. The three-master has a beautiful, spacious deck, which is an ideal place to relax. For events or trips to the northern European waters, but especially to the Mediterranean. The ship has an elegant saloon bar, a comfortable deck bar and its own hotel kitchen.
The Atlantis can accommodate up to 140 guests. They can expect experienced and enthusiastic service staff and excellent catering. And of course, a great sailing experience on an authentic barquentine with an enthusiastic service and navigation crew. The Atlantis complies with all safety requirements of the Dutch Maritime Inspection.
The barquentine will be moored at the Royal North Sea Yachtclub and when not at sea, she will be open to the public!
