Additional Information the ship was initially built as a fishing lugger in Bergen, Norway in 1907 and lengthened in 1930. It was out of commission between 1944 and 1989. The present owner bought the ship in 1989 and converted it by himself into a modern seagoing vessel with ketch rigging. Since 1992 the sailing ship is used as a chartering vessel. In 2002 it was converted into a 3-masted gaff schooner and in 2009 again converted into a barkentine.
