Nordlys Ship – Fairtransport Co.

The 25 meter ketch, Nordlys, is possibly the world’s oldest cargo ship. Built in the Isle of Wight in 1873 as a fishing trawler, she is now part of the Fairtransport fleet and can carry up to 30 tonnes of cargo between European ports. She accommodates a crew of 3 professionals and 6 trainees.

Like the Tres Hombres, she is also an engine-less ship, transporting her cargo with the perfect combination of skilled seamanship and the power of the wind.
