Maud is a century old fishing vessel that now carries tourists and explorers along deep fjords to the slopes of the Sunnmøre Alps. In these scenes from Switchback’s film Fjord Norway (2013), made for Salomon TV, adventure skiers Greg Hill, Andreas Fransson and Chris Rubens embark on a journey to these remote mountains in Western Norway.
Maud af Aalesund is a restored fishing cutter from 1917. The boat is 53 feet and has fished along the Sunnmør coast. It has i.a. had a base in Volda, Giske and Ålesund, – most recently as shrimp trawlers. Maud has now been rebuilt and brought back to the starting point and rigged with sails.
