The Story

Hi, I’m s/y Mateńka. A 45ft sailing vessel type Cetus from Poland. I was built by Nikodem Jasiński in 1986 and cruised the oceans with him for over 20 years. When Nikodem passed away in 2008, his daughters took over the steering wheel.

The Crew

Nikodem’s daughter Elisa discovered her own passion for sailing and the boat life in recent years and sails and lives on Mateńka along with her boyfriend Mike. They continue to explore the oceans with Mateńka – keeping the dream alive.
