Sailing means adventure, experiencing nature and relaxation. Nowhere is this experienced more than on a traditional sailing ship like the two-masted clipper ELEGANT, which has braved wind and weather for over 100 years. After years of service as a coastal freighter on the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, carrying cargoes including potatoes and beetroot, the Elegant was converted into a charter ship in 1994.

Today, the ship has 30 beds in 9 spacious double cabins and 3 quadruple cabins. All cabins have comfortable beds, a sink with hot & cold water, sockets & central heating. Besides an excellently equipped kitchen, the Elegant also features a large, bright saloon with bar, beer tap, games and a small library. In addition, the Elegant also offers various seating options on deck.

Charter the entire ship for your sailing trip, company outing, class trip or wedding party and book a very special experience. Of course, the Elegant is also an excellent “event location” for day trips of up to 55 guests. Everything is possible! The crew will ensure that you feel comfortable on board at all times and – if you set sail with us – arrive safely again.
