Bonawentura was built in Gdansk in 1948.  In the early days she was a fishing boat in the Baltic Sea, until 1967, when she was withdrawn from working at sea and was stationed at the port of Wladyslavovo as a tug until 1974.  Eventually her hull was transported by barge to the Academic Nautical Club in Vistula for partial dismantling and reconstruction.  The boat was launched in 1986, and construction continued with long pauses, combined with the devastation of the unit by thieves and vandals.  In the meantime the rigging, bowsprit and spars were made.  In 1991 she was towed to Gdynia, and in 1992 the rigging and spars were installed and the first sea trials made, with the final completion of the work at the turn of 1993/94.
