According to this website
"She was built in 1953 at Sakuth, Heiligenhafen, Germany, a small fishing port on the Baltic Coast. It is believed Ursula was built as a cadet training ship but may have also played a part in the Cold War with sophisticated sonar and listening equipment originally installed on board.

Built to a traditional design with oak planking on oak frames, Ursula withstood the harsh Baltic conditions for many years, with lead ingots packed into the bow area for ice breaking.

After a major refit in the mid 1990's, Ursula spent 10 years operating in the Scottish Hebrides, carrying passengers on whale watching trips. During this time she was named 'Solais Na Mara' .

Overall she is 23.3m long with a 5.68m beam and 2.40m draft.

Sail area is 153m3.

Max speed 10 knots.

Gross Tonnage: 99.5 and DWT = 54.

Accommodation on board caters for 11 crew in 3 cabins, including 2 doubles.

Main Engine is a 250hp Perkins Sabre M215C​.

I see she's on airbnb as well!
