    Mercator - sailing school ship

    by Luchonda Updated Feb 26, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Favorite thing: At the occasion of "Oostende voor Anker" many fans of sailing and "flipping" meet each other.A highlight is definately visiting "The Mercator" - Flag ship of the Belgian Marines
    This three-master builded in 1931 - cost about 75.000 euro that time-and weight about 800 tons.
    It was used by the belgian Navy until 1960 - as from that date it serves as a kind of museum - floating al over the world !!
