History[edit]

Built in 1939 in Denmark, the Esther Jensen was used as a fishing boat initially.

In 1992, she was bought by Theo van Tricht, and restored and modernised. She now sails in European and Polar waters as a sail training vessel, offering escorted sailing holidays.[1] She is eligible to take part in The Tall Ships' Races organised by Sail Training International.
