Viking ship ‘Draken Harald Hårfagre’
is a modern, craft-built ocean-sailing construction of one of the largest ships of its type noted in historical records. Measuring 115 ft. in length, about 26 ft. in width, about 78 ft. in height, with a draft (keel to waterline) of about 8 ft. Its hull is planked in Oak, the mast is hand-hewn Douglas Fir, a single square sail made of Silk, rigging of Hemp rope.

She sailed from her homeport of Haugesund, Norway on April 24, 2016 to make a multi-port expedition voyage based on traditional Viking routes; eventually crossing the Atlantic Ocean to continue to make landings at various ports of call in the U.S.A. and Canada.
