Roald Amundsen was built in 1952 in Roblau/Elbe as a NVA tank logger for the former GDR’s National People’s Army.
In 1992, the boat builder Detlev L ll and his friends from the society `Learn to Live on Sailing Ships` turned her into a brig as part of a programme against unemployment. Roald Amundsen made her first voyage in 1993 under the command of Immo von Schnurbein, a former captain of the German Navy sailing ship, Gorch Fock.
Although the Roald Amundsen offers no luxuries, she is well equipped with the latest communications and safety equipment on board. She has participated in the Tall Ships’ Races on several occasions including the race from Cadiz to Amsterdam in the Tall Ships’ 2000 Transatlantic Race.
