The Museum Ship Gl. Turisten
In 2003 we entered into an agreement with the Fresh Water Museum of Ry concerning the Museum Ship Gl. Turisten, which sails guided tours from Ry. The more than 80 year old ship was in 2001 declared preservation-worthy by the society for preservation of ships, as the only vessel in the lakes area between Ry and Silkeborg. During the years 2001 – 2004 the ship has gone through a restoration and it was in this period we initiated the co-operation. The 24th of June 2003 Dan Boyter named the ship: “Museumsskibet Gl. Turisten” (the Museum Ship Gl. Turisten).
In Pressalit we, as mentioned above, would like to support activities in our local area, and we are very pleased to have taken part in making one of the original intentions with the ship possible – to sail with young students and thereby pass on knowledge about nature around the fresh waters. Every year Pressalit donates a trip on Gl. Turisten to six classes at the local school as part of their schooling. On the trip the students are offered to carry out water and underwater tests as well as learn about fish and birds in and around the lake area. Furthermore the employees and business connection of Pressalit enjoy the co-operation, since they on special occasions can take a trip with Gl. Turisten.
