Dannebrog

Queen Margrethe's yacht Dannebrog (named after the Danish flag) was built in 1931 and 1932 at the Naval Dockyard in Copenhagen. It replaced the previous royal vessel, an 1879 paddle steamer, also called Dannebrog.



It's 78,43 meters long.

The ships has studies for the queen and prince Henrik, a dining salon, a lounge and various bedrooms. Margrethe II has taken a personal interest in the interior decoration of the royal apartments. They contain furniture and fittings from the previous 1879 royal vessel.




The yacht is an official and private residence of queen Margrethe II of Denmark, the prince consort, and members of the royal family when they are on official visits overseas and on summer cruises in Danish waters.
