The ship was built and launched at the renowned Cooks & Welton Shipyard of Hull, UK in 1949. The ship was built for Icelandic owners as a herring fishery vessel. In the early 50's the vessel was sold, remaining under Icelandic flag. By the late 50's she was operated by Norwegian owners who significantly modified her and used her as a seismic research vessel. She operated until 1972 when she was sold to a Canadian owner. From 1972 until 2001 she spent most of her time in fresh water in Quebec. She was occasionally used for marine biology research missions in the Great Lakes and Atlantic Basin, and was well-maintained professionally. In 2001 the ship was purchased and was refitted to comply with the Offshore Petroleum Board for use as a chase and seismic vessel. In 2002 the current owner purchased the vessel to rebuild into a new sailing passenger ship. The vessel was surveyed extensively, found in immaculate condition, and suitable for use as a 245' sailing barquentine for 100 passengers and crew.
Accordingly, the vessel was taken down to its bare hull and sandblasted in and out. The vessel was re-ballasted and a new sailing rig was installed. A lower deck was built as an accommodations deck; new SOLAS-compliant bulkheads were built, each with IMS hydraulic watertight door operable form multiple locations; new systems of electric, piping and air conditioning were installed; and, cabins were built in four different configurations.
This 245' Sailing Vessel has been reconfigured and rebuilt as new at the completion of 2007 and accommodates 76 passengers plus crew. The vessel is fully SOLAS 2010 Compliant. It is fully equipped and classed for ocean operations as a commercial passenger vessel. It is in perfect turn key condition and is fully operational and ready to work. There is no question this 245' Barquentine Tall Ship is the most capable and interesting vessel of its class and size available on the world market today.
