GRAYHOUND – A unique experience!

Grayhound Ventures offers you the unique experience of sailing on a traditional 18th century lugger – a fast sailing vessel with ‘lug’ sails built for smuggling or chasing smugglers.

Help contribute to a greener way of thinking, travelling and transporting cargo while experiencing sailing in its truest form. Come for a real working, sailing, team-building holiday that will challenge you and give you new skills.


Come sail with Grayhound!

Our Partners

The vision

Grayhound was built to offer environmentally-friendly charter and cargo shipping on a classic sailing ship. 
 
We offer a range of voyages, from family-friendly day trips to demanding expeditions in big seas. Please see our Physical Challege Rating (PCR) for each (1/5 = easy; 5/5 = very challenging). Our cargo capacity is 5 tons and 2 barells. We welcome enquiries from environmentally-responsible producers.      
 
We have a background in producing large-scale theatrical projects, including Toqqortat in Greenland, Burnt Out Punks and Kompani Bastard. Performing arts may become a part of Grayhound’s life. For now we are content to offer a miniature museum on board that features fascinating maritime items from the collection of Dr Cagliostro
 
We are from the north and we follow in the traditions of our ancestors. Your berth will be named after one of the great female or male Nordic explorers. We travel in the wake of Roald Amundsen, Fritjof Nansen, Aud Djuopauga and Aina Cederblom and often share their routes. 

Environment friendly

We offer environmentally-friendly, hands-on sailing voyages. We only start the engine when absolutely necessary.

Low-carbon delivery

We are experienced in delivering goods swiftly and responsibly. Let our sails become a part of your commercial journey. Sail is the final link in an ethical international supply chain and it creates a compelling story.  We carbon compensate through Atmosfair.

Grayhound Lugger Sailing

Sail with Grayhound during Medeltidsveckan on Gotland! Grayhound is a newly built replica of a smuggler/pirate lugger from 1776 that used to make the English channel unsafe, and customs frustrated during the second golden age of piracy.

Take the chance to join our crew for a day and see the Tortuga of the Baltic the way it's supposed to be seen, from the deck of a pirate ship!

Day sails from Visby harbour on August 12, 13 & 14. Or why not sail with us all the way to Gothenburg when the whole medieval spectacle is over? Booking and info on grayhoundventures.com/
