Mir is a 1910 classic 113’ sailing ship. Mir’s homeport is located at Raffles Marina, Singapore and she sails between our conservation projects in Indonesia and Sri Lanka.
She was purchased in Malta on June 1, 2009 and rebuilt to sail from the Mediterranean to Bali in 2010 (via the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Indian Ocean, Bay of Bengal, Singapore and the Java Sea). During the voyage, the crew collaborated with the Blue Marble Initiative to log the journey in celebration of our beautiful blue planet.
In 2011-2012, Mir’s old deck was completely removed and reconstructed at ASL Shipyard in Singapore, then laid with the restored teak in Bali.
In 2014, Mir’s interior was rebuilt with Makassar Buggis sea people.
Despite all above, she looks tired and in need of a refit before she deteriorates further.
