Description

Southern Actor is the only whaling boat from the modern whaling epoch still found in its original working order. You find it at the museum wharf in Sandefjord. We can offer tours up to 45 passengers with Southern Actor from May to September. Food and drinks can be ordered. We recommend peas, meat and bacon or pea-soup with rolls - true sailor food!

The boat was built in Middlesborough in England in 1950 for the shipping company Chr.Salvesen and participated in whaling until it was laid up in 1962. After a long period as a whaling boat, the boat ended up in North Spain where it was supposed to be destroyed. However, by a coincidence, a Norwegian whaler found it and sent it back to Norway.

On 25 October 1989, Southern Actor arrived in Sandefjord. The Whalers Club of Sandefjord started with the restoration of the boat. Their goal has been to restore the boat to working order, enabling it to undertake different assignments as part of the museum.

With a three-cylinder steam engine, the whaling boat is exceptionally quiet and the engine can hardly be heard on deck. A popular trip is to sail from Sandefjord to Tønsberg.
