This project led by the association “Trois Mâts Basque” is aimed to rebuild a three-mast schooner from the end of 19th century, the Biscaye, used for food commodities transportation by the Basque sailors. It was sailing for extended journeys between the Basque region, Saint-Pierre-Et-Miquelon, and the Antilles.

The rebuilding of this ship will take place in Socoa near Saint Jean de Luz and it will last about 8 years. The association wants the shipyard to be open to the public.

The association expects to welcome passengers on board for visits and receptions at the dock, day navigations, coastal or offshore sailing trips.
