M/S Sabine was built at Esbjerg shipyard in 1959 as the No. 3 of 4 similar bunker boats, commissioned by the oil company Gulf. She sailed under the name Gulf 3, first in the port of Esbjerg, then in Hvide Sande, Hanstholm and in Copenhagen, with diesel and lubricating oil for the cutters, and was able to load both 8 tons of lubricating oil and 18 tons of diesel, which were in large iron tanks.

 

In 1995 she was taken out of comission and in 1996 she was sold to a carpenter in Esbjerg. From 1996 until 1999, she underwent a complete rebuild and was converted into a pleasure craft. From 1999 until 2019 she has sailed under the name Langli, as a pleasure craft, b.la. up along the Swedish coast, down through Germany, and into the North Sea. In 2019, she will again be registered as a commercial vessel, approved as a tour boat with up to 12 passengers under the name MS Sabine.

 

Today, MS Sabine is modernly equipped with VHF, chartplotter, Radar, self-control, AIS, digital chart etc. The boat has plenty of seating inside, as well as a well functional kitchen and toilet. There is plenty of deck space outside for fishing, or sitting and enjoying the weather and nature. The boat is heated with an oil stove.
