"No. 5 Elbe" - Schooner

Sea ship from the era of wooden shipbuilding

The „No. 5 Elbe“ was built in 1883 in the shipyard from H.C. Stülcken and is the last preserved ship out of the traditional wooden shipbuilding techniques era. The client was the “Hamburgische Deputation für Handel und Schifffahrt”, which wanted a precise and solid construction. Over 30 years the “No. 5 Elbe” was used in the Elbe estuary and German Bight to move pilots around. A responsible job in one of the roughest sea-areas worldwide.

After that the schooner was used as a private yacht. In 2002, the association “Hamburg Maritim” acquired the ship in Seattle and brought it back to Hamburg.

The white hulk, schooner rig and special trimmed masts distribute a non-interchangeable appearance. Almost no ship with this age has this much original details and fabric on deck as well as underneath.
