Il Veliero “La Grace” ad Ustica

[ id=20955 w=320 h=240 float=left] La Grace is a replica of a sailing ship from the second half of the 18th century which cruises seas and oceans with the intention to revive the Czech sailing history. We would like to enable cruises on a historical ship to all interested people, together with training in marine crafts and their proud traditions.

In order to insure the budget needed for the repairs of La Grace, we have started to sell cruises to the public. On the board of La Grace you can experience the atmosphere of discovery cruises and pirate battles, or just enjoy the sunshine, swimming, and diving in romantic bays. Sail with us – choose any cruise from our offer. Prices starting from 240 Euro per person/ week.

According to available sources, La Grace was the name of the ship belonging to the first real Czech seafarer Augustin Heřman. He crossed the Atlantic several times in the service of the Dutch West Indies Company. Later on, when out of service, he started his carrier as a privateer, raiding Spanish trade ships with La Grace. Eventually, he became the largest exporter of tobacco in America.

We started to build the ship at the end of 2008 in a professional shipyard in Egypt. La Grace was launched on water on 5th December 2010. The main reason for choosing that shipyard was the fact that there the boats and ships were still being built in the traditional way. If you turned a blind eye to the logos on the local workers’ T-shirts, you would get the impression of being back in the 18th century.
