Ambrose Channel late morning yesterday

saw the arrival of this vessel, 321′ x 41′ and with that pennant flying from the masthead at 157′.

Launched in 1914 in Bremerhaven, and having changed national registry many times,

Statsraad Lehmkuhl is on its One Ocean Expedition, having left Norway in August.

New York is one of 36 stops it will make on a 55,000 nm circumnavigation worldwide.  Hop aboard via their FB page here.

 

By noon yesterday

she had anchored, basking in sunshine

just off the Statue.

All photos, WVD, with conveyance thanks to New York Media Boat.

The three-masted barque visited the sixth boro back in 1964, and maybe since then as well.

More photos and inside information can be found here.

More info about its multiple changes in ownership since 1914, here.
