Fulton of Marstal is a 3-mast schooner from 1915, built to transport dried and salted cod from Newfoundland to the Mediterranean. Nowadays, the ship is an active part of the Danish Maritime Heritage.
Most weeks during the sailing season school class sail Fulton. We offer 5-day trips to ordinary school classes, where students take part in all kinds of practical work. For example hoisting the sails, cooking dinner, cleaning and night shifts. Danish Sail Training Association (DSTA) join us a couple of times a year. When they are on board we increase focus on tall ship sail training and practical seamanship.
On Fulton a small group of vulnerable youngsters also work to find a good direction in life. We offer young people with different kinds of difficulties to live on board for longer periods of time. While on board the youngsters work side by side with the crew. Where we work to improve their skills as well as their belief in own abilities. Our wish is to motivate to education or employment and finaly enable youngsters to live a fulfilled life.
The organization “Fulton Fonden” takes care of the daily operations and maintenance of the ship. While we work under the motto: “We work together to make good days for each other”. Even though Fulton of Marstal is owned by the Danish National Museum.
