Pelican of London is a unique Tall Ship, actively chartered to a Sail
Training organisation and giving
young and old the opportunity to work a real sailing ship.
Originally an Arctic trawler, she was virtually completely rebuilt and
converted to her current form and re-launched in 2007.
She cruises under sail at 10+ knots and her unique Mainmast Barquentine
(Xebec/Polacre) sail plan enables
her to sail to windward much better than other similar ships.
She carries 15 tonnes of fuel and 12 tonnes of water AND has two water makers
capable of producing 3 and 6 tons of fresh water per day. Her range under
engine alone is in the region of 1500 nm at an economical speed of ~7
knots. Her sewage treatment plant allows her to visit the most
environmentally sensitive areas of the world.
Pelican has approval under the MCA Large Commercial Yacht Code to carry
up to 40 on board including a maximum of 12 passengers.
Her buyer is likely to be either a philanthropist, who would
like to support her in her current role, or an organisation wanting an eco
friendly vessel for sail training, expeditions, oceanography or similar research.
