Tanimara is berthed at Amerikakaj in Copenhagen. She is the pride of the harbor, her elegant details being admired by everyone passing by. The beautiful design, the precious woods, the first-class craftsmanship and the modern technical installations distinguish Tanimara from her peers.

She was built in 1935 in Germany and has been through a continuous transformation since 1970, when she was acquired by a wealthy German looking for the perfect hull to rebuild into a luxury yacht.

The German thoroughness shines through every aspect of the ship which the current owner has been working extensively on for the past 14 years.

Now, the work is done and the time is right to let new owners enjoy the privilege of sailing with Tanimara.


The early years

Tanimara was built in Labiau, Germany, in 1935 as a sailing cutter.

She sailed primarily as a fishing vessel, and under the name ” Brüsterort” she won the prestigious race ”Das Blaue Band” across the Baltic Sea.

The perfect hull

In 1970 the ship was acquired by a German real estate dealer in search of the perfect hull to rebuild into the luxury yacht of his dreams.

He named it ’Tanimara’ meaning "lonely north wind".

Renowned Dutch ship architect, Henk Lundstroo, was commisioned to redesign the ship into a ketch yacht, and worked on the project from 1971 to 1973.

It took another 50 years to rebuild the ship according to Lundstroo’s design, and his large drawings now decorate its interior.

Craftmanship – 50 years in the making

For the past 50 years three different owners have assured that Tanimara’s transformation into a luxury yacht has gone according to Lundstroo’s plan.

In the 1980s the ship was acquired by a German craftsman company and in 2006 the present owner acquired the ship and completed its transformation during the following decade.

Today, the ship stands as a reflection of first class craftsmanship. It is made of precious woods and is equipped with all modern technical installations and necessities.


Tanimara is a spacious ship with an enviable ceiling height, and it is equipped with all amenities that one could expect from a modern home (TV, internet, audio system, central heating, washing machine etc.).

The saloon is furnished with built-in shelves and cabinets, rear end windows allowing for a panorama view aft ship as well as a large sofa with seating for 8 to 10 people surrounding an oval dining table with star shaped inlays.

Centrally located is the ship's galley with all necessary installations and access to the engine room with the ship’s workshop.

Opposite the bathroom with shower and toilet is a chamber with two single bunks, and in extension the captain's cabin with double bunk and two children’s bunks. At the ship’s bow is the entrance to the front cabin with two single bunks and a separate toilet.

The style and craftsmanship throughout the entire ship ooze of quality and give a sense of well-being to every person on board.
