Launched at Nyborg, Denmark, on the 18th June,1900, Rhea is a top sail schooner, built of oak on oak. She was originally carrying stone and rock, but nowadays she combines modern comforts, such as air conditioning, with the splendours and romance of a traditional sailing ship.
Rhea has RIB dinghy with a new 50 hp Evinrude outboard. She is equipped for swimming, snorkelling, water skiing, wake boarding, canoeing, windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding, fishing, and the famous "yard swinging".
Below decks Rhea is attractively panelled throughout in pine with teak fittings and oak beams. There is a spacious saloon with a lounging area and beautiful teak dining table. The guest cabins each have air conditioning plus en-suite toilet, shower and handbasin. The aft cabin has a double and single bunk, the focs'le has a double and 'pullman' single, and the port and starboard cabins can be either doubles or twins. For parties of more than 8 guests, a further double or twin cabin can be made available on request.
Rhea's large deck area offers a teak dining table and ample space for sunbathing on full length mattresses. The use of sun awnings and sails gives the choice of shade. Many guests love sleeping under the stars on deck.... magic !!
