About Lithuanian Maritime History

The sailing ship, which became the symbol of the beginning, was built in 1920 in Germany by order of the Lithuanian Steamship Company. In its time, "Jūratė" was extremely manoeuvrable and adapted specifically for sea and river navigation. The ship was characterized by speed - it could reach a speed of up to 5 knots, and with sails it could sail twice as fast. Jūratė's masts were designed so that it could pass under bridges - they could be lowered and shortened. The sailboat also had two wooden boards (levers) lowered overboard, which reduced the ship’s lateral drift. It was also one of the first ships to fly the Lithuanian flag.
