“Ahoy”, “Cast off!”, “Prepare to board!” – children are drawn towards ships as if by magic. But bigger people are also fascinated by them.
Ships are the oldest form of transport in the world. New continents were discovered with their help. They convey huge loads and countless passengers thousands of nautical miles.
There are many different types of ships, from small sailing boats and yachts up to cargo ships, navy vessels, huge passenger ships or tankers as big as a tower block. There are a great variety of models and versions – but each of them float and they all need a crew to man them.
To be able to slip into the role of pirate, captain, helmsperson or sailor is fun for both younger and older children. And it is even more satisfying and exciting if this game can take place on board a “real” ship!
