Lilla Dan

Lilla Dan at your service

The Lilla Dan is a beautiful throwback to a bygone era. A 35-meter topsail schooner built in 1951 by J. Lauritzen as a training ship, she has been with the company ever since. Taken out of service as a training vessel in 1996, the Lilla Dan was completely renovated and put to work as a charter ship.

Today, the Lilla Dan offers companies and private groups a unique meeting place, with a maritime ambiance that inspires you to creative work, teambuilding activities or perhaps just relaxation. Onboard the Lilla Dan, you eat when you please. Our chef is an expert in her field and can make catering arrangements to serve your specific needs. Please see our menu separately.

The Lilla Dan is owned and operated by Shipowners J. Lauritzen A/S. The crew consists of four experienced seamen headed by Skipper Jesper Hjorth Johansen, who has more than 20 years of professional sailing experience. Our excellent crew will give you the opportunity to test your sailing skills during your voyage. "My heart belongs with this kind of ship" says skipper Johansen, "and the Lilla Dan allows me to share my enthusiasm and experience with others."

The Lilla Dan season runs from May to October. You decide the time and place. The vessel can accommodate 16 overnight guests and 40 guests on day tours. It is possible to hire the Lilla Dan for a shorter or longer period - all according to your requirements. Please check the possibilities under chartered tours.

The Lilla Dan also sails summer cruises on specified weeks each season, where you can register for a couple of days, a whole week or more. See more information under cruises.
