F/V Tordenskjold

In Festival Boats 2019

F/V Tordenskjold: Northwest Seaport’s “new” boat is a halibut schooner built in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood in 1911. She fished the North Pacific and Bering Sea for halibut, black cod, tuna, king crab, shrimp, and even sharks, finishing up a 100 year career in 2012. The boat was then retired and donated to Northwest Seaport in February 2017. Tordenskjold is still fully operational and serves as both an education platform and Northwest Seaport’s floating ambassador.
