About This Boat

Birthe Marie is a strongly built ex working boat with a gaff ketch rig. She still has to earn her living and the feel aboard is that of a clean work boat rather than a ‘yacht’. Her hull shape is particular to the Scandinavian fishing boats; all curves. 

Built as a fishing boat in Denmark in 1933, Birthe Marie fished as far as we know in the North Sea and the Baltic. Originally she was built with a ‘wet well’ in the middle part of the boat which was flooded with seawater to keep the catch alive and fresh. For a full story on her six year renovation see here. 
She is a heavy boat for her size and can take a little time to build up speed but her weight comes into its own when the seas are less smooth and she is a reassuring boat to be on when things get rougher.

Aboard there is ample space for up to 12 passengers and a crew of 1-2. In addition to her red and tan sails, the boat has a capable Perkins diesel engine which can get her home in time for dinner when there is an unsuitable wind or a lack of it altogether.
