«LIBAVA» is an authentic historic replica of a pleasure yacht of the 17th century. Build after prototypes of shallow-draught dutch herren yachts, three centuries ago such vessels made part of almost every royal fleet in europe.

Ship drafts were made based on museum materials, mainly original drawings of Dutch yachts from the archives of the Naval Museum in St. Petersburg, and German historic books.

Originally based in the seaport of Liepaja (hence the name Libava, an old German for Liepaja), every summer the sailer heads to Jurmala, a popular resort on the shore of Riga Bay. Here throughout the warm season captain Anatoly Molokanov and his crew arrange cruises for everyone who’s fond of sea romance and fresh breeze of the Baltic Sea.
