S/Y Goxheim's original name is “Goxheim”. The ship was built as a motor cutter in 1940 in Hatlestrand in Hardanger. The name of the boat builder was Bård Gjerde. She has never before been rigged as a sailing ship. In her time as a fishing and cargo vesselt, she had her sailing area from the Varangerfjord in the North-East to France in the south.

Between 1999 and 2002 there was performed a rather extensive reconstruction of S/Y Goxsheim. From the original vessel, only the hull and the deck remain. Shipyards and boat builders have performed most of the exterior works. The owner did the interior.

The heating of the ship is from hot water circulating in radiators and the flooring. This creates a rather pleasant climate on board. If you should be in need of more heat, it is possible to make a fire in the wooden fired stove in the lounge. And if that should not be enough – get in the sauna!

The main mast is 24,5 m above sea level, and for those of you who want to enjoy the view – get into the crows nest that is mounted 21 m above sea level…….
