SAGA IBIZA
Original Schooner 1935

SAGA IBIZA is a schooner - sailing vessel with fore-and-aft sails on two or more masts, the foremast being shorter than the main and no taller than the mizzen, if there is one - an original wooden sailing vessel in perfect shape, handcrafted in Finland, in 1935.
The first schooners were build by the Dutch around 16th - 17th century and were used in trades requiring speed and windward ability, such as slaving, privateering, blockade running and offshore fishing. During The Golden Age of Piracy schooners were popular with the pirates of the West Indies because of their speed and agility and their ability to sail in shallow waters.

SAGA IBIZA, 80 years old in 2015, is a legendary ship, with admirable behavior in rough seas and strong winds, that can compete with modern sailboats in all aspects.
Spanish partners Marcelino and Simón, running a Boat Events & Excursion Company, recently became the proud new owners of the schooner and sailed her an heroic 2500 miles, from Finland to her new home, Ibiza. They feel honored to own and sail her by Mediterranean waters, in the knowledge that SAGA will outlive us and our children.
Navigating this vessel, truly makes a difference, for it offers a unique sailing experience incl. 'pirate' feel while enjoying comfortable summer cruising and wonderful anchorages in the Balearic waters.

SAGA IBIZA The Full Story
SAGA IBIZA - The Full Story

“SAGA”, was born in Finland and
according to Nordic mythology the name has several meanings:
1. Daughter of God
2. Goddess of Oracle
3. Goddess of History

The vessels first owner, Tori Aleska Pokjolas¡i, was working 5 years to conscientiously construct an everlasting keel of Nordic Pine.
Between 1940 and 1945 the hull of SAGA was hidden under sand to avoid the Russian occupiers from finding, and profiting, from it.

In 1946 the hull was sold to the brothers Erikson, that finished the construction and used the vessel  until 1963 to transport heavy cargo, such as sand and wood, between Finland and Sweden.
By the end of the seventies the heavy labor was done for her and the schooner was restyled by new Danish owners.
In her new life she was used for educational boat trips, before she sailed the Mediterranean, Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea for more than a decade.
Until in 1991, another Danish couple bought her and sailed her back to Denmark, where SAGA, for more than 15 years, was used in daily boat excursions and as day charter for family boat trips and educational trips in collaboration with schools teaching marine life.
Well maintained during all those years, and her keel still in best condition, the schooner was in perfect original shape, when she very recently was purchased by her proud new Spanish owners, Marcelino and Simón.

During the cold Northern winter months they sailed SAGA over 2500 miles from Denmark to Ibiza, crossing the North Sea, the English Channel, Gulf of Biscay, “Costa da Morte” Galicia, Strait of Gibraltar to the east coast of Spain, where she was docked to be painted, rigged and get her new Spanish flag.
