The wad & sont cruiser Store Baelt was built in the year 1928 and tells a very interesting history.
First named Drittura, the ship was a sturdy motor cruiser, even having served in war.
It was during World War II that she transported cargo for the Allied Forces and Operation Neptune in 1944 saw her protecting the beaches from bombs on D-day.
Thanks to an extensive overhaul in 1994, the Store Baelt sails as an impressive charter ship today.
She proudly shows her guests the beauty of the Wadden Sea, Lake IJssel and the Frisian Lakes.
