Donna Wood

Donna Wood sailing with happy passengers

The latest addition to the North Sailing fleet is the beautiful two mast oak ship Donna Wood built in 1918. Representing Danish shipbuilding tradition at its very best Donna Wood was originally built as a lighthouse ship but in 1990 the ship underwent massive restoration and was equipped with rigging and sails.


Donna Wood is a roomy ship with a deck saloon seating 24 and ample space below deck comfortably accommodating 12 people in 7 cabins equipped with washbasins and closets. The hallway features spacious shared shower facilities and toilets.


Donna Wood is the eighth ship of the North Sailing fleet, fourth in the line of sailing ships, but in addition North Sailing operates four oak wood boats in whale watching.


Donna Wood will be deployed for sailing expeditions in Iceland and in Greenland which have become increasingly popular. Last summer North Sailing operated the schooners Opal and Hildur with great success exploring the magnificent Scoresby Sound fjord in Northeast Greenland. With the addition of Donna Wood, North Sailing seeks to respond to the growing demand for sailing and adventure expeditions.
