Madonna (Zar), Helsingør, Denmark

The 3 masted schooner was built in 1942, based on drawings from the 19th century as a freight vessel. Main dimensions of the vessel are 43 x 7,2 meters.
In the years 2003-2009, we did several restauration jobs on the ship, including straightening of the keel, new stem, new main engine and replacement of the wooden deck.
At the time, the vessel was owned by the Danish brewery, Carlsberg, who used it for representation and press conferences. In 2004 they even used it for PR at the European football championship in Portugal.
In 2010 it was sold and renamed to “Zar”.
