The original Lilla Dan ship is a 35 meter topsail schooner built in 1951 by J. Lauritzen as a training ship. It was built in famous Svendborg shipyard in Denmark, constructed mainly from oak and beach. After complete renovation in 1996, the ship was taken out of service as a training ship and was put to work as a charter ship. Nowadays, the purpose of Lilla Dan is to offer companies and private groups a unique meeting place. It is operated by Shipowners J. Lauritzen A/S. The crew consist of four seamen.
