Earl of Pembroke
Built in Sweden in 1948, the Earl of Pembroke
was originally named Orion and traded timber in the Baltic and on
British east coast. In 1974 she was laid-up in Denmark before
being bought by her current owner in 1979.
The Earl of Pembroke then underwent a complete restoration
programme lasting 6 years and converting her to the magnificent
barque she is today.
Based in St Austell, Cornwall, the ship is regularly used for
training days and passages around the UK coast and over to the
Continent. She also has a long list of film credits to her name
and is an excellent ship for hospitality days.
