Wooden tall ship, m/aux Astrid was built in 1947 in the rural district of Porvoo, Finland, for coastal freight traffic. The current owners acquired Astrid in 1969 for sail training purposes. The cargo hold was transformed into a cozy salon for lounge and lodging. Astrid was approved to Finland's National Board of Antiquities’ registry of traditional tall ships in 1994. The ship has been completely refitted and equipped with the latest technology and safety equipment.
Astrid is suited for groups of up to 60 people.
Starting price for ship rental is 2000 € for three hours.
