About This Boat

As my guests you will have the unique opportunity to discover Europes second biggest harbor on board of a modern 42 feet sailing yacht. We will make maneuvers just in front of the Elbphilharmonie, cruise along the maritime skyline and see the biggest container ships in the world from very close! As a true Hamburger and passionate sailor, I will tell you fantastic things about the port of Hamburg while you are enjoying the winds and tides. You will also be able to steer the boat yourself!

We will be on board of a modern, 42 feet, sailing yacht and experience winds and tides of Germany's most beautiful, challenging and diverse river. We are going to see huge container ships, cruise ships and many other boats from very close, which is every time a spectacular moment (even still for me :-)

I´ll provide life jackets (free)

IMPORTANT: Please be sure to wear appropriate clothing due to the weather conditions!
