We only categorize this boat Standard Plus because each cabin features bunk beds, rather than lower beds. Otherwise, this boat is a beauty!
The Artemis – named after the godess of the hunt – was built in Norway in 1926 for whaling purposes and sailed until the late 1940s in the North and South Polar Seas. In the fifties, it was converted into a freighter and sailed between Asia and South America until she was no longer competitive and was taken out of service.
In 2001, the Artemis under new ownership, transformed into the elegant sailing ship she once was. In the hold, there are now fourteen comfortable cabins with shower and toilet. The ship has central heating and air-conditioning, the most modern navigation and communication equipment, and a small hotel kitchen that has everything you can think of. Of course, all prescribed safety provisions for sailing are present.
