About the boat:
MS RAPP is a traditional wooden fishing boat built in 1913 and powered with a nostalgic 40HP, 1 cylinder, glow head engine which was common in the Norwegian fisheries until the early 1960´s. These vessels are now a rare sight and in recent years RAPP has been carefully renovated and modernized, while still maintaining the essene of it’s past – beautiful wooden hull, decks and the historic motor.
Inside, the former cargo hold has been covered into a cozy heated lounge space which features a large solid oak table where you can sit down and enjoy a conversation with the others, or just soak in the atmosphere.
