Do you fancy the residential boat project? Live on the water for little money? Do you have manual skills? Then the MATHILDE could be something for you.


Great for living

Very bright and cosy inside, there is enough space for the whole family with 3 sleeping cabins, two bathrooms, a galley, a workshop room and a spacious saloon.


Traditional ship

The history of the "Mathilde

The MATHILDE (then HERTHA) was initially a pure cargo sailing ship, which could also be used for coastal voyages. It was not until 1927 that the HERTHA received a 28 hp engine at the Peters shipyard in Wewelsfleth, her mizzen mast was removed and the jib and topsails were replaced.
Dismantled. The original construction plan of the HERTHA, which was laid down under the construction number 217/1914, is now kept in the "German Maritime Museum" in Bremerhaven. Before she was moved to the museum harbour in Lübeck in 1993, the private owner had (almost) restored the ship to her original condition. Inside, she was given her current and cosy interior. On the internet, you can find more information about the history of the cargo ship on several pages. Link Link

To sail

Many instruments on the bridge

There is an outside and inside steering position. The bridge is equipped with fairly new instruments. A Simrad autopilot, a Shipmate radio, a Simrad plotter, depth sounder and an electronic compass. From here you go down to the saloon. Very cosy with a wood-burning stove and enough space for guests. From the saloon you reach the guest bathroom with electric toilet, the fully equipped galley and the "children's room" including its own washbasin in the room. From the galley you reach the second bathroom with bathtub, hot water boiler and electric toilet. The opposite bedroom with Pullman bed also has its own washbasin in the room. From here you reach the small on-board workshop. Another double cabin with its own companionway is located in the stern of the ship.


The ship needs some love and craftsmanship. To live on it for the time being, the work is limited, depending on your requirements. But if you also want to travel with the MATHILDE, it needs a bit more work and investment. The engine is very old and no longer runs. Even the inspection by a mechanic only gave the information - replace. This means that you need a tugboat (as is the case with most residential boats) for a visit to the shipyard. Or you can do a complete overhaul and give the cargo ship a new engine. It doesn't have to be right away, but it's always nice to take your home with you on holiday.
