Carpe Diem is a so-called “Slup” with a single mast for the mainsail and a separate foresail. It was built in 1997 by the german shipyard “Bavaria” in Giebelstadt and is certified for high seas by the German Lloyd. I am the third owner ever since. The hull is made of high strength plastic (GRP) and is approximately 10 metres long and 3,25 metres wide. The mast has a height of 14 metres over water. The draft is 1,70 metres with a short ballast bulb keel.
