Biography


Earl of Pembroke is one of very few large wooden sailing vessels still in operation. Built in 1945 in Sweden she was constructed using those quickly disappearing techniques and skills that we are trying to preserve. No heavy machinery or computers were involved in the making of this beautiful vessel.

Today she is rigged as three masted barque resembling the famous Endeavour on board of which Captain Cook discovered Australia back in 1770.
