Lady of Avenel

The Lady of Avenel is a 102ft Brigantine square rigger sailing under the Dutch flag.

Currently owned by riggers and surveyors Jim Dines and Stefan Fritz, Lady of Avenel was built in Poland in1969 as a motor ship, but converted to a sailing vessel in 1991.

The owners want the ship Lady of Avenel to become a training vessel. An entirely appropriate path for the ship as the original Lady of Avenel, also a brigantine, was a boys training ship fitted out by Wilfred Dowman, the man who then purchased the Cutty Sark and refitted her as a training ship.

The title Lady of Avenel was and still is a bit of a strange name for a ship. It was taken from one of Walter Scott's novels where a lady was pined away in her castle awaiting the return of her husband who was always away fighting, and now her ghost haunts the estate - still waiting.

This special ship with a unique story  comes complete with a large fully equipped galley and a spacious deck saloon. She takes 12 person and has a crew 3 crew for self cooking / catering trips or a cook for full board cruises. The accommodation consists of 4 two berth cabins and a spacious 8 berth bunk room, 3 toilets and 4 shower rooms.
