The SORLANDET was built in Kristiansand, Norway, in 1927 as a full-rigged ship for training young people for the merchant marine. As the demand for regular training of young seamen decreased in the seventies, she extended the activities to welcome the general public on board. The name SORLANDET comes from the southern region of Norway – it means the southern land.

The SORLANDET’s High protector is HRH Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway.
