The Ghost Ship is a 3D water-based, hologram of a sailing ship.


It was created in 2014 by Mihai Baba and made its public debut during that year's Amsterdam Light Festival, to international acclaim.


Since then, custom versions of the Ghost Ship have been commissioned across the world for both public and private events.

Q: Do you also cover the production of the Ghost Ship?

A: Yes, always.


Q: What local resources are usually required?

A: A solid power connection (landline or generator), a forklift, housing for the lights and a working boat are the most common staples.


Q: How long does it take to prepare the Ghost Ship for an event?

A: Optimally, a few months – this gives us sufficient time to edit and cross-check the planning. The very minimum is a few weeks, provided sufficient resources are available.


Q: How long does a display last?

A: The Ghost Ship can be displayed continuously from sunset until after midnight, for anywhere from several days to several weeks.


Q: Who handles the permits?

A: Usually, the client. Or a local representative of the client. We supply the site plans and technical details, of course. 


Q: Can the Ghost Ship show custom content?

A: Yes, it can. Get in touch to discuss the possibilities.
