From the very beginning, Shtandart was a completely volunteer project, a dream of a historic ship, first by a very small group of enthusiasts, and then by an increasing number of people. Now we know – a real dream is achievable. We saw this in the successful creation of the Shtandart. We are grateful to everyone who helped build this ship and is now helping to keep this beautiful sailing ship in good condition.
Shtandart has been sailing for more than 20 years, and during the first year of operation, it became very clear that additional funds are required to operate, manage and maintain Shtandart in a professional way.
Today our Project is funded in three ways:
- By financial and material donations from companies, trusts, organisations and individuals.
- By income received from filmings, Tall Ships events, Maritime Festivals, visitors and functions aboard ship.
- By selling souvenirs.
Together with other friends of the project, you can take part in keeping the traditions of sea adventures on a real sailing ship, and help us pass on knowledge of historical navigation to future generations.
There are various ways that you can help the Shtandart Project, ranging from sponsoring a hammock to donating engines (as in the case of Volvo!) While we do not expect more engine donations, assistance to the project can take various forms.
You can also help the ship by purchasing our souvenirs.
Interested parties are warmly invited to become a supporter of the Project. (Please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org for details).
We thank you very much for your interest in the Shtandart Project.
