Vessel’s history

Chopin” was built to order of the Polish Digital Telephony (PTC – Polska Telefonia Cyfrowa Sp. z o.o.) by Wioska Żeglarska Krzysztof Kosiński. The hull of the ship was made in Płock. The ship’s designer is Krzysztof Maćkowiak from Gdańsk.

The first presentation of the ship took place on September, 23 1999 at Cypel Czerniakowski in Warsaw. From the outside, the ship looked as it does today, but inside there were few other items in addition to engines and piping.

Until the spring of 2001, the ship was standing near the Poniatowski Bridge and Żerań in Warsaw. All this time, it was being used for meetings by the PTC, while finishing works were being carried out inside.

In May 2001, the ship sailed to the Gulf of Gdansk, where she accompanied Wojtek Brzozowski’ windsurfing events in Puck, Hel, Jura, Rewa and Jastarnia, and also participated in the CUTTY SARK sailing ship rally. After the end of the season in the Gulf of Gdansk, the ship sailed up the rivers of Vistula, Narew and Pisa – to the shipping area, for which it was built, i.e. the Great Masurian Lakes.

Since the summer of 2002, “Chopin” has been one of the greatest attractions of the Great Masurian Lakes. Its first port in Masuria was the House of Creative Work of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Wierzba. Since 2006 the ship has two harbors in Mikolajki.
