Southern Swan

Movie star Southern Swan at nearly 100 years old is looking even better with age

Southern Swan at nearly 100 years old and looking better with age. She’s been there & done that. Previously named ‘Our Svanen’, Southern Swan was built in Denmark in 1922. She has had a unique nautical history. Originally configured as a three-masted schooner, she sailed Baltic trade routes as a cargo vessel, including charters for Tuborg brewery until 1969. In 1969, she was purchased as a private vessel by the Havers family and extensively refitted to handle larger and longer ocean voyages. She then sailed extensively for the Canadian Naval Cadets for nine years. 

Southern Swan has starred in several films, including ‘Rite of Passage’, ‘Angels of the Deep’, ‘The Catalpa Rescue’ and ‘Darwin’s Brave New World’.

Southern Swan was the first vessel to sign up to make the voyage from England to Australia in 1988, and take part in the famous Australian Bicentennial First Fleet Re-enactment
