The schooner "Anna Rogde" was launched August 20th 1868 at Bangsund Skipsverft in Namsos. Constructor was Sigbjorn Birkeland. She has thus a long and rich history and there is a reason for her to be called "the sailing queen of Norway".
ANNA ROGDE has sailed as a freighter along the coastline of Norway, the Baltic sea and along the coastlines of other countries as far south as Portugal an as far east as Archangel. She is a living proof of Norway's old shipbuilding traditions, and probably the oldest sailing schooner in the world. She was the last of the Norwegian sailingships to leave active duty when she was laid up in 1972.
ANNA ROGDE has been owned by the Rogde fanily - from the island Kjotta in Harstad - for three generations (more than 100 years).

The schonner is suitable for:

  • Local daytrips
  • tours to Lofoten and along the Norwegian coast
  • Conferences, meetings for up to 18 persons
  • and many other uses
