Mercator

Museum
Oostende

Arctic traveller Adrien de Gerlache designed this three-master which was built in Scotland. The Mercator had only two commanders and made 54 voyages. In 1956 it repatriated the remains of Father Damien from Molokai. In 1960, it sailed into the harbour of Antwerp and in 1961, it was equipped as a museum ship. Since 1964, it has been the pearl in Ostend’s crown.

The Mercator has left its berth on 29/09/2015. Currently, the ship is not open to the public. Homeward journey: 29/03/2017. As from April 1, 2017 visits will be possible again.
