Architect and ship builder, Albert Svenson designed and completed the build in 1948 in Sweden. This traditional vessel, rigged as a three-masted schooner was originally named Orion and was one of the very last commercial sailing vessels to serve on the Baltic Sea.
In 1985, work began on renovating the ship and in 1994 in England, the three-masted ship was reborn! From this year onward it proudly resembled Captain Cook’s legendary 18th Century “Endeavour”.
