Guest berths: 8 Rig: Gaff Cutter
At 60ft in length, Eda Frandsen is the perfect size for exploring the many anchorages of the Western Isles and Cornwall. Small enough to sneak in close to the coastline, yet stable enough to withstand almost any weather. She is traditional in the truest sense of the world with an original rig, combining the simplicity and beauty of a bygone era with today’s modern comforts.
Eda Frandsen is a beautiful traditional gaff cutter, built at the Grena shipyard, Denmark in 1938. Having worked for much of her life as a fishing trawler in the harsh climates of the North Sea, her hull was lovingly restored on the remote peninsula of Knoydart, Scotland in the 1990’s.
Guests enjoy a unique blend of grace, character and seaworthiness and whether a beginner or seasoned seafarer, we offer voyages that are suitable for all ages and abilities.
Down below she can accommodate 8 guests in single berths, which are centred around her large saloon and dining area. There are two toilet/shower rooms, with separate access into the forward accommodation area. She has a small but highly functioning galley, from which many a delicious dish will be served throughout your stay.
Voyages on Eda Frandsen range from short breaks in Cornwall to trips up or down the Irish sea and six or nine-night adventures exploring Scotland and the Hebrides form our home port of Mallaig. So whether it is a brief escape or a complete sense of immersion you are after, there will certainly be something for all.
New for 2021 Eda Frandsen will be offering 4 and 6-day’ boat bubble’ private charters from Falmouth throughout April and May before she heads north for a fully booked Scottish schedule.
