Kimito island has long sailing traditions. On the banks and shores of especially Västanfjärd, have sailing ships been built all the way untill the beginning of the 20th century. The original Eugenia was the last yacht still sailing in Finland, with Bolax of Hiittis as its home port.
The current Eugenia is an exact copy of the original. Eugenia is maintained by an association whose goal is to pass on information about sailing and its traditions. Passangers may participate in traditional sailing activities on board.
During the summer, public cruises are arranged. The whole ship may also be rented to a group for i.e. employee recreation, weddings or birthdays. School groups are given special discounts. The cruises last about 6 hours or an agreed period. We can assist with planning and arrangement. Footage of Eugenia.
