History of the Soren Larsen

The Soren Larsen is one of the most magnificently restored and adapted Tallships still sailing in worldwide survey and is one of the most illustrious wooden vessels of her type in the world. Built in northern Denmark in by Soren Larsen & Sons at Nykobing Mors. Constructed entirely of oak she was massively built with oak outer planking on double oak frames with an inner hull planking of oak.
 

Between 1949 and 1972 she traded throughout the Baltic, British and European ports carrying general cargo, timber & grain.
 

In 1978 Soren Larsen was saved from destruction by family owners in Colchester, England. There Captain Tony Davies assembled a team of skilled shipwrights to commence the restoration work. New decks, masts, yards and spars were made and she was entirely rerigged as the graceful late 19th century brigantine she is today.
 

Much of the funds required for her early restoration work were earned by filmwork and the Soren Larsen achieved international fame as star of the classic BBC television series “The Onedin Line”. Other film work followed, including “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”, “Count of Monte Cristo” and “Shackleton” – which involved sailing north to the Arctic Circle into the pack-ice of Greenland.


Invited to be the Flagship for the Australian Bicentenary re-enactment voyage of the First Fleet. Soren Larsen Led a fleet of eight Tallships on a 22,000 mile voyage from England to Australia via Rio de Janerio and Cape Town, arriving to a tumultuous welcome in Sydney in January 1988.
 

In 1989 Soren Larsen sailed to New Zealand for the first time, to represent Britain during New Zealand’s 1990 Sequestry celebrations.
 

Soren Larsen now works from her home base in Auckland New Zealand during the southern hemisphere summer and explores the tropical waters of the South Pacific from March to November. Soren Larsen relocates her base of operations to Sydney, Australia, doing charters and daysails on Sydney Harbour over the summer months and voyaging through the South Pacific from April to November.
