The Johanna Lucretia sailing near Portrush county Antrim Northern Ireland! A British tall ship, the �Johanna Lucretia� is an oak wooden two masted topsail schooner. She was built in 1945 at the Rhoos Shipyard, Ghent, Belgium. Measuring 96ft (28.65m) in length, her beam is 18 ft (5.50m), her draught is 8 ft (2.45m) and she has a total sail area of 380 m2.

The ship was originally built as a fishing vessel, but was never used as such, instead she was converted in 1954 for recreational use, by owner Ber van Meer. She sailed in Dutch waters until 1989 from her port in Enkhuizen in The Netherlands. In 1989 the Johanna Lucretia was sold and transferred her base to Plymouth in the United Kingdom under the ownership of Mrs. Heather Henning.

In 1991/1992 she was refitted in Gloucester at the Tommy Nielson Yard and was used for charter mainly from Gibraltar, the Caribbean and the Eastern coast of the United States until 2001 after which she was sold to Cutlass Classic Charters Ltd.

She has starred in the film The Riddle of the Sands in 1978 when she took the part of the Medusa and more recently in the film Amazing Grace � a drama about William Wilberforce�s campaign to end the slave trade. She also starred in the Irish TV reality show Cabin Fever where she replaced the original Cabin Fever ship after it ran aground off Tory Island! Canon 7D!
