A flat-bottomed ship lies in the mud flats.

Wadden Sea Safaris with the "Franzius"

Experiences on board a flatboat

The gaff glider "Franzius" was built of wood as a flat-bottomed ship with retractable leeboards in modern construction, following the load sails of the 17th century. There are 16 berths available for the fellow sailors/trainees. Under the expert guidance of the experienced skipper, the guests learn to keep course and set sail with the tiller. You will be involved in all on-board work for the duration of the multi-day trip. Sailing skills are not required and are taught on board. During the day cruise you enjoy your stay on board without having to work with us.
