Most Recent Surveyor Remarks

The sailing vessel MYSTIC was found to be in overall good condition with a well-managed ongoing program maintenance plan. As a working commercial tall ship we found the vessel being maintained with good attention to detail.

A number of upgrades to this vessel have been introduced and continue to be fulfilled. It is our opinion the vessel is fit for the intended service as a commercial Ocean charter traditional sailing passenger vessel.
