Filmed sitting over in Pollock dock this time. Wonderful ship.
Sørlandet is the oldest of the three Norwegian Tall Ships and the oldest full rigged ship in the world still in operation!
The full rigged Ship Sørlandet represents a unique heritage from the days of the tall ships and fast clippers. The Sørlandet was built in 1927 at Høivolds Mek, shipyard in the city of Kristiansand, on the south coast of Norway. The Sørlandet is 499 gross tons. She had no engines!
She is well equipped with air-conditioning and otherwise she is in her original condition. The main engine is of 560 HP only. In 1980, the Sørlandet went through a full restoration. She had extensive restoration in 1988 and again from 2003 to 2007. In the summer of 2012, Sørlandet spent four months on dry-dock at Tuzla, Istanbul for a very major restoration project which included replacing many of her riveted steel hull plates and a complete rebuild of the main ‘Banjer’ area where students sleep and attend classes and replacement of many support systems.s
