It has been in my possession since bought new. Danish Steam Frigate Jylland, Billing Boats BB5003. The frigate Jylland was the last warship of the Danish Royal Navy built of oak.
It was launched on 20 January 1860. On 9th May 1864 Jylland fought in the Battle of Heligoland against a fleet of Austrian and Prussian ships. The 2450-ton Jylland had a hull lenght of 71m (96m overall) and a beam of 13,5m. In 1960 Jylland was towed by tugs from the naval base in Copenhagen to Ebeltoft.
On 11 August 1984 it made its last voyage - into a new exhibition dock. After several years of restoration work, Frigate Jylland was opened to the public.
