Juku, first built in 1954 as a fishing boat, was almost totally rebuilt into a training vessel between 1976 and 1982. When I stepped on board, it felt as if time had stopped in 1982. Despite serving several purposes ever since, most notably transportation between the center of Tallinn and Aegna island until 2013, little seems to have changed ever since. Juku has three masts and can hold 7 sails, although that hasn't been seen for a long time - I failed to find any pictures. The distinctively noisy machinery isn't very powerful either, so the top speed remains a single digit.

|Machine room. While at sea it was nowhere near as noisy as on the Gann, but apparently the generator alone is still noisy enough to require hearing protection.|
