On Friday 28th September, 2018, the French sailboat, a three-master built in 1948, will arrive in Saint-Malo which will become its home port.
A new big sailboat will be established in the port of Saint-Malo: the three-masted French, which must arrive in the corsair city Friday, September 28, 2018.
This vessel was originally called the Kaskelot (sperm whale in Danish) and was built in 1948 in Denmark.
In recent years it was operated by an English company that sold it to Marine Evénements, whose Malouin Bob Escoffier is the general manager and is based in Saint-Malo.
This new high class sailboat should contribute to the reputation and the cachet of the corsair city. It will be rented for sea trips or dock ceremonies.
Note that it will be possible to visit it for free on September 29th and 30th, 2018. It will be moored along the Duguay-Trouin dock near the premises of the Compagnie des Pêches.
