Nordlys (1873) the worlds oldest engineless cargo ship still working

Nordlys, manoeuvered entirely by the power of the wind is possibly the worlds oldest cargo ship (1873) still working.
She is currently operating in the European coastal trade.

Originally a fishing trawler, nowadays she is able to carry a maximum of 30 tons of rum, wine, olive oil, cider or other goods. Besides that Nordlys will raise awareness about the huge amounts of pollution, created by the modern shipping industry and affect positive change in the way goods are shipped around the world.
