Together with you, we want to create a space for musical exchange and experimentation between musicians on the sea. In small and larger groups, you can jam, improvise, or give small concerts on board at any opportunity. In the cities we sail to, we want to use pedestrian zones and public places to make music together. In the evenings we could
    give concerts together at the harbor, e.g. with the Lovis as a stage. Nothing is necessary, everything is possible!

    Based on the experience of the previous tours, we want to use the common space more for the exchange of skills and experiences – be it musically, in terms of content, or in terms of stage presence/appearance etc.
    Already existing groups are as welcome as single musicians. Your music and instruments should be compatible to road and ship (i.e. rather mobile) and should not require major technical equipment. You should be able to play/improvise well with other musicians.

    Cost contribution: 310 to 460 € p.p. depending on self-assessment (Even 310 euros are too much for you? Please let us know in time, then it’s no problem. Then you can still come along! :-))

    If you feel addressed, write us a few lines about you and your music to Musik[ät]lovis[dot]de


    We want to approach the motto “sails always, engine never” as far as the situation allows. This means that together we will look at what the weather and our mood offer and take care of the safe and fun progress with Lovis in alternating shifts. In addition to lookouts, navigation, steering and sailing manoeuvres, we also enjoy good conversations, games and delicious food. And even though we have quite a distance to cover, we will certainly find the opportunity to anchor or moor up in a nice harbour every now and then. Previous experience is not a prerequisite, much can be learned and tried out during the trip. The cost contribution for the trip is 450 to 660 EUR according to your own assessment (kids from 6 years old pay half the price, younger kids to your own assessment). If that’s too expensive for you, just get in touch anyway. We will certainly find a solution.

    If you are interested or have any questions, please contact us at esther[ät]lovis[dot]de

    We look forward to a wonderful, sociable time together, full of sailing, life and pleasure!


    The movement of a sailing ship is influenced by wind, weather and waves – people at sea have always drawn or documented what they have seen. Inspired by this, we want to draw, paint, write and express ourselves creatively. We want to experience the connection between sailing and art for the second time on our Art Sailing Cruise 2024.
    This cruise is an opportunity to see nature from a different perspective and to develop our creative side. That is why we are happy to not only welcome people who are already creative, but also those who would like to try out creative techniques and methods for the first time. We would like to offer the opportunity to learn from each other. We are very happy if you want to share a skill.
    We will have a few materials such as pens, paper and lino printing on board. Nevertheless, we recommend that you bring your own sketchbook and pens as well as any creative tools that you would like to use or share with others. In the end, we can create a logbook that summarises our experiences at sea.
    All people are welcome. However, we do not tolerate any forms of discrimination. Bear in mind that this is a trip that involves a bit of travelling, so we may have to sail through the night.
    We would be very happy if you could organise an arrival and departure for yourself that does not include a flight. There are trains to Göteborg via Kopenhagen, so it’s also easy to departure from Copenhagen by train.
    For adults the cost contribution incl. foods is between 450-660€ according to self-evaluation, children from 6 up to 15 years pay 50% and the cost for children under the age of 5 are on a self-evaluation basis.

    We want to prepair the ship for a great season. Before the sailing can start again, the winter-building-stuff has to be removed and sailing-stuff needs to get on board.

    Rust and paint – finishing the coat

    This week we would invite you to make Lovis spiffy again! There is no place on the ship that sea water and air can’t turn into a a wonderful new rusty corner. Therefore, you are invited to put a stop to the corrosion with sweat and dexterity, and to give the ship a shiny seasonal coat of fresh new paint. We will try to finish the last works on the steel and reduce the optical defects, to start with a flawless beauty to new adventures.

    We invite you to working together from 26.02. to 06.03. for a few days on board to live, to laugh, to feast and also to make ourselves comfortable and cozy.

    Rig building week II

    This week we will continue to take care of the wooden parts: masts, gaffs, spars, booms, blocks and nails are looking forward to our care. Intermediate sanding and painting will be our main tasks here.

    In addition, we will take care of replacing lines and turn over pairs of wire ropes in the masts.

    If you would like to be there, please contact ole[ät]lovis[dot]de

    Rust & Rigging

    This week we will do something good for both the wood and the steel on board. Using a rust hammer, Tercoo disk and sandpaper, we will remove the rust on the deck and then preserve the steel with fresh paint. We also want to take care of the wood: masts, gaffs, spars, booms, blocks and nails welcome our attention with sandpaper and brushes.

    Of course, we’ll make ourselves comfortable on board.
    We look forward to your support!

    Rust I

    Dear friends of Lovis

    Here comes an invitation for the first construction-week, with and on Lovis this winter. You are warmly invited to be there with active support in our reconstruction weeks to make Lovis fit for the next season.

    In the first week of reconstruction, we will primarily take care of the steel and remove rust with rusthammer, tercoo disc and sandpaper and then preserve the steel with fresh color.

    Previous knowledge is not required. We give you a briefing in the different variants of rust and how to only recognize it with your fingertips, which tools are the best when and where and how they work at all.

    You bring for yourself: a bed sheet, a sleeping bag and warm clothes for work.

    We offer: the opportunity to learn a lot, eat delicious food, game evenings, a warm bunk and construction site romance.

    Smash the Endo-Cistem Trip

    We start this year for the first time a Smash the Cistem trip.
    This means that everyone who identifies as agender, non-binary, trans* or inter* and is respectful of other identities is invited to this cruise. We want everyone to be able to feel comfortable. The crew members, however, will be FLINTA*. The crew’s job is to guide the sailing and answer questions, while we fellow sailors take over the ship and decide together what we feel like doing.

    No previous sailing experience is required, as you will learn everything you need to know during the trip. The total cost of the trip including food will be from 310-460€ according to your own estimation. If you cannot afford the 310€, please contact us.

    The trip is self-organized. That means that we organize cooking, sailing and cleaning together. We want to network, chill, have fun and share knowledge during the trip. So, if you like to bring e.g. a guitar, books to read together, an exciting movie, things to work on creatively or a great workshop concept we would be very happy! There is already a guitar and many board games on board.

    There will be a maximum of 33 people participating. We will sleep in 2, 4 and 8 bed cabins.
    The food will be vegan. If you need something else to eat or have intolerances/allergies, please let us know.

    We ask you to take a Corona quick test on the day of arrival. There will be the possibility to test yourself during the trip as well and we will inform you in detail beforehand.

    If you have any questions, uncertainties or wishes, please feel free to ask.

    We are looking forward to you.
