Norwegian yacht charter

S/Y Framstig


Sail the fjords

Framstig is a handsome sailing yacht with a storied past.

Originally built in Norway in 1914, she was discovered and rebuilt in the 1970s by five adventures from the island community Flemsøy who, after a full restoration, sailed her around the globe on an epic three-year voyage.

Since then, one of the original crew members, Svein Flem, has continued to keep the spirit of adventure alive using her as a private sailing basecamp along Norway’s dramatic coastline for intrepid climbers, hikers, skiers, kayakers and fjord explorers.

Though basic, she is a certified passenger ship and holds all required safety equipment and amenities ensuring your comfort after long days in the great outdoors.
