Our activities, principles and values
Who are we?
Under the company name "Historical Tallship Sailing Ltd", we, the Haynes family, operate and maintain the 100 year old wooden Brigantine Florette. She is the last of her kind, and we offer tour operators, organisations, groups, families and individual sailors a unique opportunity to discover the sea, the land and the people as well as their cultures. We offer and promote environmentally friendly and sustainable tourism. By sailing together, we also support the preservation of our valuable maritime tradition. You can come onboard as voyage crew and actively participate in sailing and onboard life; all in a family atmosphere. We have also supported expeditions and environmental research on climate change and ocean pollution for two generations. With the trademark ECOSHIP and the associated interesting projects such as cargo under sail, with our own coffee brand "VELA VELA", we maintain our values and maritime tradition.

Proudly operated by "Historical Tallship Sailing Ltd" and helmed by the Haynes family, we extend an invitation to you to traverse some of the world's most enchanting waters - from the azure depths of the Mediterranean, through the expansive reaches of the Atlantic, to the vibrant hues of the Caribbean, and onto the historic shores of Europe.
