The Ship


 1956 - 2016

The ALK in her first life
as a tug (1956 - 1993)

The name

The Alk - more precisely the Great Auk (Alca impennis, former Pinguinus impennis) - is the penguin of the north. With a body size of up to 85 centimeters and a weight of about five kilograms, he was the largest of the auk birds.

The interior

When I bought the Alk in 2003, it was almost empty. With the conversion in the 90s to the Motoryacht, an aft cabin was added and the wheelhouse was rebuilt. "Maybe not so unfavorable," I thought and saw my chance to fit and to furnish the boat as I liked it.

The engineering

The m/s ALK was built 1956 as double-ender, round-chine cutter with closed wheelhouse.
