Sorlandet
King of the ocean.
Winner of the Tall Ships` Race 2003: This 80 years old vessel is still in perfect condition. The bow of the Sørlandet cuts through the North-European waters at summertime and since 1995 it regularly crosses the Atlantic Ocean on its way to far-away destinations, like the Caribbean. When the ship is not manned by cadets of the Royal Nordic Marine, you can take the rudder together with the permanent crew on board. With the popular Nordic crown princess Mette-Marit as patroness, the ship cannot wish for better vibes. So as crewmember of this royal ship you live like a king!

Accommodation

This ship is mostly in its original state, which gives it a warm and cosy appearance. Both the dayroom and crew cabins are equipped with air-conditioning. The sleeping quarters have `fitted` bunks against the wall and for the devotee we have super relaxed hammocks. Obviously, dinner is well taken care of.

History


The Sørlandet is alternately manned by cadets of the Royal Nordic Marine and by passengers. The ship was built in 1927 and was - after a royal inspection of the Nordic king Haakon and crown prince Olav - put into service as a trainee ship for future sailors that same year. In 1933 it crossed the Atlantic Ocean as first Nordic ship. The ship was refurbished after the Second World War and a motor with screw was built in. After a few different owners the ship was taken over by a non-profit organisation in 1977 that maintains the ship to this day. The Nordic Department of Culture acknowledges the importance of this sailing heritage and is co-banker. The Sørlandet still crosses the Atlantic Ocean on a regular base and several times it entered the spotlights. The Sørlandet hosted a tour along the Nordic coast (84.000 visitors) and even performed as an extra at a New York film shoot.
