Wylde Swan is ideally suited for the Scandinavian seas and fjords. She started her working life in 1920 as a herring hunter to bring fresh fish from the North Atlantic to Norway and Denmark. Between 2007 and 2010, the sleek ship with the beautiful lines was converted into the spectacular schooner that the Wylde Swan is today.

Each and every guest that that gets to know Wylde Swan falls in love with her. The spectacular sailing capacities and the spacious decks and interior makes the Wylde Swan the perfect ship for a short of longer trip in the beautiful Norwegian waters.

On board you can choose to mingle with the other guests and build valuable relationships. You can also find privacy on deck to enjoy the magnificent views or retreat to the privacy of your bunk to rest or read a book.

The hull of Wylde Swan started life as a ‘herring hunter’ in the 1920’s, working off the Shetland Islands – a ship built for speed, ferrying the fresh catch from fishing grounds to the markets ashore. The Jemo, as she was originaly called, was originally built by HDW in Kiel. The ship was decommissioned sometime in the late 20th century and had changed ownership several times before Willem Slighting saw in her underwater ship the makings of a fast sailing ship.

Her sleek underwater hull is now part of a rugged sailing ship, reminiscent of the large schooner yachts of the 1900 era. She was relaunched in June 2010 as world’s largest two mast topsail schooner, with worldwide certification as a sail training vessel.

Wylde Swan combines the majesty and tactics of the largest tall ships with the sailing characteristics and raw excitement normally only found on much smaller yachts. At sea Wylde Swan offers sail training and teambuilding to people of all ages. In port Wylde Swan transforms into a handsome location for corporate hospitality.
