About this ship: Antigua

The barkentine Antigua has been sailing in European waters for more than half a century. The ship was built in Great Britain in 1957 as a fishing vessel. In 1993, the Antigua was transformed into her current form, a typical three-master. During the restoration, the Antigua was re-rigged as a barquentine. The result is an elegant ship with great charisma and excellent sailing characteristics. In 2021, a new deckhouse was build. A place was created where you can keep warm and dry while enjoying the view.

Description of the cabins
The Antigua has 16 comfortable guest cabins, each with its own bathroom with shower and toilet. All cabins are located below deck, 8 cabins have 2 separate single beds and 8 cabins have a bunk bed. All cabins are equipped with central heating, shelves and have a porthole, which is closed for safety reasons. The cabins are practical, offer enough space for your luggage and exude a maritime atmosphere.

Description of the ship
On the middle deck, you will find the dining and lounge area, cozily furnished with U-shaped sofas. You will also find the well-equipped bar here. Outside, there is a large, furnished deck and if the weather is a bit disappointing you can take a seat on the upper deck in the new deck salon, where there are comfortable seats and wide views outside.

Guests on board the Antigua can expect an experienced and enthusiastic crew and excellent catering. And, of course, a one-of-a-kind nautical experience on an authentic three-masted ship.
