Old Salt Get involved


We, Heiko and Kai, bought the Old Salt 2011 from the customs authority. The once proud sailing ship laid "on the chain", confiscated as it served as a smuggling vessel for international drug traffickers. The machine was broken, the sails tattered, the upholstery torn. Now we want to let the ship shine again in the old glory, because it was once a beautiful ocean yacht. New Glory for Old Salt

The plan is to make the Old Salt seaworthy again and sail with her to her old homeland Tasmania.

A good deal of the way is already done: we have exchanged the engine, as well as cloth and rigging. The hull was welded and completely reworked.

What is left to do:

For this we want to hire a carpenter full time and hope to be so far in about a year that even larger boat trips and exits are possible. We hope to create a self-sustaining business to make the dream of sailing on the oceans possible, with at least one full-time job on and around the ship.

To realize this plan, we launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.

In order for this ship to shine back to its former glory, a lot of money is needed besides a lot of work. If you share our dream, then watch our campaign:


Are you looking for a representative advertising space?
heir advertising could stand on this ship: 220 square meters of sail area and a hull of almost 20 meters in length provide ample space for a real eye-catcher.
