A flatboat with sails set.

The "Franzius" was built as a flat-bottomed ship with leeboards and a gaff rigging in modern, form-glued wooden construction in the style of the earlier load sails. With its flat bottom, "Franzius" is ideal for drying out in tidal waters. As in earlier times, the estuaries of the rivers Weser and Elbe with the off-shore Wadden Sea and its islands are the home of the "Franzius".

In the hull there are 3 toilets and washbasins as well as 12 berths, which can be folded away for day events or used as benches, and another 4 guest berths in the forward cabin. Under the expert guidance of an experienced skipper and his 2 to 3-man regular crew, the guests are there to set the sails and learn to keep the course with the tiller. During the voyages, all fellow sailors are integrated into on-board life as trainees as far as possible.
