Die Historie

built by Albert Svenson, Pukavik, Sweden as Orion in 1945 or 1948.
Launched 1945 for shipowner A. Wingren in Oskarshamn on the Swedish east coast

The ship was used to haul timber in the Baltic Sea until 1974, when she was laid up in Thisted, Denmark. Square Sail Shipyard and Robin Davies purchased the ship in 1979 and began restoration in 1985.

Earl of Pembroke is a wooden barque, currently being used as a tall ship of the 18th century for historical films. She can also be rented for excursions.
