The sailboat was built in 1917 in Koivisto, Finland . Length of the ship is 32,27m, width is 8,67m and draft 3,62m. Displacement was 226 BRT. The sailboat was named “Polaris" until 1938 when it was sold to a shipping company in Estonia called "Raa" . Since there already was a ship named “Polaris” in Estonia then it was renamed “Raa”. It is believed that the ship sank on the 8th of August in 1941 in an explosion. Now “Raa” is on 26m near the island of Aegna on its keel. All deck constructions are gone and the interior is also in disorder.
