Balearic - Boat&Bike - FAQ1
Accomodation - Three-masted barque "Atlantis" (all cabins with shower/toilet)
With a length of 57 m and a width of 7.45 m the boat offers 17 comfortable cabins with active ventilation and air-conditioning, for up to 34 guests. Each cabin has two twin beds. From 1905 until the end of the 70s the Atlantis was the Light Vessel Elbe 2/Mayor Bartels and cruised through the Baltic Sea. Due to the sailing ship like hulk it was prevented from the salvaging. In the beginning of the 80s the lighthouse was replaced with three masts with sailcloth of 750 m² and the interior was equipped with comfortable cabins and an elegant saloon. The unique charm of the Atlantis is due to the caring maintenance of the owner and his crew who already sailed around the world with the boat. It is always an adventure when the crew sets sail with the help of their guests and when the proud barque is starting to move through the water. In this specific way the journey differs from our other Islandhopping programs with motor boats.
The tour includes half board, and the different stages of the tour make it expedient that occasionally only breakfast is served on board, whereas on other days two warm meals are taken on board.
