Worlds Largest Barque

Launched in 1914, Norway’s tall ship HNoMS Statsraad Lehmkuhl is the world’s largest three-masted barque. The 95-year-old ship is used to train cadets from the Royal Norwegian Naval Academy. With 50 sails and an old-fashioned rig-system, the tall ship does not carry advanced computer technology, electric engines or hydraulic systems.
