A Weserkahn on a cruise trip.

The gaff sailer "Franzius" was built as a flat-bottomed ship with lowerable side swords in a modern construction of wood, in the style of the 17th century. There are 16 berths available for the sailors/trainees. Under the expert guidance of an experienced skipper, the guests learn to hold their course with the tiller and set sails. During the duration of the multi-day trips you will be involved in all on-board work. Sailing skills are not required and will be taught on board. During the day trips you will enjoy your stay on board without having to cooperate. The "Franzius" was certified as a national park partner of the Wadden Sea at the beginning of 2018.
