Gulden Leeuw

 
The ‘Gulden Leeuw’ is a big, sturdy sailing ship reminiscent of the 30’s and with the deck layout of a classic yacht.

This ship was built in 1937 on behalf of the Danish Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. The DANA was designed and built as an ocean-going ice class ship. During her period of service for the Danish government, she was frequently used for marine biological research, not only in Danish waters but also in international ones. The ship has a rich history. She sailed as a researcher, supplier and even as a training ship for a Danish nautical college.

In the past two years the ship has been converted into a three-masted topsail schooner, so the foremast is also yard-rigged. This very versatile rigging combines the advantages of a square-sailed ship and a fore-and-aft rigged ship.

The ‘Gulden Leeuw’ offers space for up to 200 passengers on day sails and for 56 trainees on longer voyages. We are passionate about sail training and are eager to ‘show you the ropes’. On board our ship we appreciate team spirit.

The ship has a luxurious flair and is therefore also very suitable for corporate hospitality, seminars and daytrips.
