Ground plan of Ship Chopin
Ship Chopin in Masuria

The "Chopin" ship was built on the order of the Polska Telefonia Cyfrowa
Sp. z o.o. (PTC), by the Wioska Żeglarska of Krzysztof Kosiński.
The sail's hull was made in Płońsk. The designer of the ship is Krzysztof Maćkowiak from Gdańsk.

The first presentation of the vessel took place in the 23rd of September 1999 year on Czerniakowski headland in Warsaw. From outside the ship looked exactelly the same as it looks today, whereas inside besides engines and pipelines there were not many other elements of the equipment.

Till spring 2001 the ship was standing close to Poniatowski Bridge and in the area of Żagań in Warsaw. During that period it was used for PTC meetings, while at the same time the interior finishing works were continued.

In May 2001 Chopin sailed away to Gdańsk's Bay, where it was accompaning the windsurfing events of Wojtek Brzozowski in Płońsk, Hel, Jurata, Rewa, Jastarnia, and what is more, she also took part in the CUTTY SARK ship rally. After the season spent in Gdańsk's Bay the vessel was transferred through waterway - Wisła, Narew, Pisa rivers - to the navigation area she was built for - the Greatest Masurian Lakes.

From 2002 summer season "Chopin" ship is one of the biggest attractions of the Great Masurian Lakes region. Its first masurian port was a House of Creative Work (Dom Pracy Twórczej Polskiej Akademii Nauk) in Wierzba. From 2006 the harbour of the ship is a foot-bridge by AMAX Hotel in Mikołajki.
