In September 2018, Castor burned in the old harbour in Bogense. The ship was at berth when the skipper saw smoke coming from the engine room. And then the alarm went off, people were stirring, and the sky was covered with thick black smoke ... The firefighters got control of the fire fairly quickly, but the damage unfortunately turned out to be worse than initially thought. The wooden ship was declared totally damaged, and a rebuild was needed. It was not only the hull that burned, but also wires and hoses.
So Castor came to the shipyard, and the shipyard visit to Egernsund turned into a very long one, where they also found rotten planks on the port and starboard side. Castor is now under repair, and she's ready to sail again for the 2020 season.
Did you know that Castor is actually an old lady?
MS Castor was built in Esbjerg in 1936 and was a fishing boat in the North Sea until the mid-1950s.
In the 1960s, the ship was rebuilt and furnished as a school ship for young criminals. Later, Castor started sailing with tourists, locals and charter guests on trips in the Kattegat and the Little Belt.
In 1996, the ship was bought by a group of citizens in Bogense, where she has since had her place in the old port. In 2014, Castor went from being a limited company to becoming the Self-Owned Institution Castor of Bogense. It provided the opportunity to apply for funds and grants for keeping the ship in operation. The tour ship is 52 feet long and 16 feet wide. It weighs 40 tons, has a depth of 3 meters and carries 39 passengers.
