Sailing on Andrea Jensen

Andrea Jensen was built in 1939 as a sailing fishing boat, and she worked in the North Sea until 1988. She was then decommissioned and bought by her previous owner, who restored her to sail with a traditional Gaff rig. Built of solid oak, displacing 75 tons, she is very stable, safe and comfortable. Andrea Jensen has sailed out of Alghero, Sardinia for the last 12 years and is a popular local attraction that guests return to year after year.

Andrea Jensen is an 80 foot Gaff Ketch (two masts) and has the ability to hoist up to 6 sails (depending on the number of crew and weather conditions). She was very heavily built in order to withstand fishing in the dangerous North Sea between Denmark and Scotland. Her Oak hull planking is up to 100mm thick!

Andrea Jensen is registered as a small commercial vessel by the UK regulatory body the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA). She is inspected annually by a UK surveyor on their behalf. Her stability conforms to the highest standard class 0, which means she could sail safely anywhere in the world. She carries liferafts, lifejackets, lifebuoys, flares, first aid kit etc in accordance with MCA requirements.

She is separately licensed by the Italian authorities to operate day trips from Alghero.

Since purchasing Andrea Jensen, Colin and Rachel have spent many hours working on board, upgrading the systems and layout, inorder to improve her comfort, whilst aiming to retain her traditional looks and feel, for our guests to enjoy.

The selection of guests on anyone trip can vary in age, sailing skills, ability, strength and sea going experience. This always makes for an interesting and enjoyable day trip and safety is always the skipper and crews primary concern. 

We aim to ensure that nobody ends the day feeling disappointed. We offer a variety of experiences during the day trip to ensure that everybody onboard has a memorable experience at sea on Andrea Jensen.
