Antigua

The barquentine Antigua has been sailing European waters for over 50 years. She was began life as a fishing ship in 1957 in Great Britain. With sense of nautical tradition and attention to detail, in 1993 the Antigua was converted to the character rich triple masted sailing ship she is today. 

The Antigua became by her restoration abrigantineThat means that the front mast of the sailing ship is abeam rigged and the other masts fore and aftIt resulted in an elegant ship with apowerful presence and excellent sailing characteristics.

Expedition to Spitsbergen
The beauty of the barquentine Antigua did not go unnoticed and was acquired by the Frisian business, Tallship Company in 2005. The level of comfort and luxury on board compliments that of the company's flees perfectly. The Antigua stands out due to her stylish interior, atmospheric saloon and comfortable cabins. Her exploits around Spitsbergen in arctic waters are nothing short of extraordinary.

Authentic triple masted sailing ship
The Antigua is able to carry up to 95 guests on board for day-sailings and has berths for 32. Our guests can enjoy the excellent food and drink served by experienced and enthusiastic staff. Along with being on an authentic triple masted barque with an experienced deck crew and all the necessary modern navigational equipment ensure a safe trip, makes this a wonderful nautical experience!

Welcome to the rich history of traditional sailing, welcome to the Antigua.
