Eda Frandsen


Eda Frandsen is a gaff rigged cutter, originally built in Grenna, Denmark in 1938 and began life as a fishing vessel for lobsters and then Seine netting out of Lemvig, Denmark.

Between 1990 and 1995 she was refitted in Scotland and since has operated as a successful charter vessel, taking people of all ages for traditional sailing voyages exploring the Scottish Isles.  She has sailed to the Baltic, Portugal, Spain, and a transatlantic voyage, winning the Concours d’elegance prize at the Antigua Classics in 2002.

Under new ownership in 2012, Eda continues to sail on the West Coast of Scotland in the summer, and offers additional Cornish charter voyages in spring and autumn.  With Falmouth as her home port, they look forward to enjoying the Tall Ships Regatta in 2014 in local waters.
