Here are some facts about the boat we are sailing in:

  • Name: Désirée
  • Construction year: 1991
  • Shipyard: LM, Kolding, Denmark
  • Type: Vitesse Cabrio
  • Home port: Bogense, Denmark
  • Length: 35 feet (10,50 m)
  • Motorisation: Volvo Penta 2003T (43 HP)

Désirée was bought in 1991 by Liv’s grandparents, Inge and Hans Erik. They have been sailing on the boat ever since with a great amount of family and friends, taking her around the Danish waters.

This year, we have gotten to sail Désirée further north than she has ever been, heading up the Swedish coast towards the Gulf of Bothnia.
