Soren Larsen is a 145' brigantine that accommodates 22 passengers in 2 or 4 berth cabins.

Soren Larsen is a traditional square-rigged brigantine, constructed entirely of sturdy oak. After conversion from a trading vessel to a passenger ship in 1978, she has sailed over 160,000 nautical miles, circumnavigated the world, and has chosen Auckland, New Zealand as home. Soren Larsen is fully equipped with modern safety and navigational aids and is surveyed for world-wide voyaging. Each southern hemisphere winter she cruises the romantic and barely accessible islands of the South Pacific, giving many first time sailors and adventurers of all ages a genuine 'experience of a lifetime'. From November to April she sails the beautiful New Zealand coast, participating in Tall Ship events.

Pitcairn Island

As you sail towards Pitcairn, you approach one of the remotest of the world’s inhabited islands, lying halfway between New Zealand and the Americas. Four thousand and eight hundred kilometres of open ocean separate you from them; a few archipelagos lie to the north; and the southern seas are empty to the ice caps of Antarctica.


Australia

Australia was first discovered by Europeans in 1606. In 1983, Australia dominated the international sailing community with their victory over the long-defended America’s Cup with the radical winged-keel. Besides their racing prowess, Australia also offers excellent cruising. Sail to the cities of Sydney, Perth, and Adelaide, the Whitsunday Islands, or even circumnavigate this southern continent!
