Statsraad Lehmkuhl
Cinematic action!
Norway`s largest sailing vessel looks like a real film set: The Statsraad Lemkuhl is an impressive and romantic appearance with its length of 98 metres and 2000 m2 sail. With the many metres of sail you`d better roll up your sleeves. This all under supervision of Captain Marcus A. Seidl and his 22-man crew. The Statsraad Lehmkuhl takes daytrips, but also cruises of 10 days and naturally this ship competes during the Tall Ships` Races. This Nordic giant even regularly finishes with the first three.

Accommodation

The interior is spacious and comfortable. There are two lower deck floors, where you will find the sleeping quarters that facilitate hammocks for everyone. Also at the lower deck there are large dayrooms where at times the crew gives theory lessons or teaches you how to make knots. Also plenty of space to relax in between the action.

History


The three-mast Statsraad Lehmkuhl was built in 1914 as a trainee ship for the German commercial shipping carrying the name of `Grossherzog Friedrich August`. After World War One the ship was taken by the British army as a trophy of war and sold in 1921 to the former minister of Norway; Kristoffer Lehmkuhl. That explains the name, Statsraad Lehmkuhl, which literally means; cabinet Lehmkuhl. With the exception of both World Wars the ship has serviced as trainee ship. Ship tycoon Hilmar Reksten bought it in 1967 to prevent it from falling into foreign hands. Twelve years later he donated the ship to the foundation `Stiftelsen Seilskip Stadsraat Lehmkuhl`. The foundation is owner and manager since. Thanks to private donations and government funds Norway`s largest ship still sails the oceans.
