Address: Varvintie, Raahe
The impressive landmark reminds us of the professional pride of the sailing ship era and the importance of that era to Raahe. The dimensions of the memorial follow the mast of the Brig Ahto, which was built at the very location of the memorial site, about one-third smaller than the original. The Brig Ahto sailed the seas of the world under the ownership of a local merchant from 1867 to 1897, and it was built by Fredrik Sovelius' trading house. The Varvi mast erected by the Varvi-Välikylä village association was unveiled in August 2021.
