WANDERBIRD is a North Sea fishing trawler converted to a very comfortable long range expedition trawler. This stout refitted vessel is the culmination of our over forty years combined experience as professional mariners. We have drawn from our experience of carrying passengers on a traditional rigged sailing ship to create a custom design for your safety and comfort. WANDERBIRD is a combination of several elements: a traditional ketch auxiliary sailing rig, beautiful wood interiors with classic yacht design from the 1940s, a charming and cozy galley, the strength and integrity of a working fishing vessel, a fuel range of 6000 nautical miles, and capabilities for offshore adventure. We invite you to join us aboard this extraordinary vessel to experience the era of tramp steamer voyages!
