Danish Three Mast Schooner

"Fulton"



Here some of my many pictures of "Fulton", - most likely the best known of the Danish schooners.

She was built in  Marstal  in 1915, - with a hull of oak -, and has been in commercial trade until 1970, - now serving several purposes like for example training young people with social problems, and sailing as a chrater ship for various groups of passengers.
She is run by a foundation who has the responsibility for running and maintaining the old ship, on behalf of the Danish government.
