Wooden Schooners

Welcome on board our three Wooden Schooners

Mira

Mira is a two-masted schooner built in Faaborg, Denmark in 1898. Mira fought hard to compete on the shipping markets until competition finally forced small freighters out of the market. Her nickname – “First Lady of Nyhavn” – derives from her beauty.

Mira sleeps 12 and has space for 22 on day trips.
