The story of Fionia:

Fionia was built in 1904 in Fakse Ladeplads for domestic freight. For many years she sailed as "Tina af Helsingør" with anglers. Then she was rigged up and became Lovise Moland. Like many others, the crisis became too heavy for the owners. For the ship's great luck, in 2012 she was bought by Ørbæk Brewery which now ensures that she still sails and we can enjoy yet another beautiful ship.

Meetingplace: Gammelhavn in Aabenraa
