Lahaina, HI 96761

A replica of the type of ship that brought New England missionaries around Cape Horn to Hawaii in the early 1800's, this vessel was built in Germany in the 1920's and is a symbol of Lahaina's days as a 19th century whaling port. A small museum is located below the decks which features a colorful multimedia exhibit about whaling and local sea life.

This was my fatherĀ“s ship. I spent most of my summer vacations onboard as a crew member. It was a lucky ship sailing to Nordic countries, performing extremely well in all kinds of weather. Whem my father retired we sold her to Lahaina to become a museum. I took my family there once for a visit. It was nostalgic to step on board and experience old times and memories. I think she had found a good place to rest in, still giving adventure to those seeing her on the sea bottom. Her name in Sweden was "Komet" built of submarine steel from the first world war. Her story is fascinating.
