MY KS Norge Yacht

The yacht KS Norge is the Royal yacht of the King of Norway.

Author: Peter Yachtfan

Norge means Norway

The ship's name Norge is Norwegian for ´Norway´.

The yacht is maintained and manned by a crew of 54, supplied by the Royal Norwegian Navy, but she is owned by the King.

A gift to King Haakon

The yacht Norge was given by the Norwegian people to King Haakon VII in 1947. King Haakon used his yacht extensively upon his death in 1957.

His son King Olaf adopted a 10 year plan to upgrade the hull and technical equipment.

A 1985 Fire Destroyed the Yacht

In 1985 when docked for repair at a Navy shipyard, a fire broke out destroying the yacht. King Olaf decided to rebuilt Norge and two years later the yacht was ready again, built to modern standards.

The current king, King Harald, inherited Norge in 1991 and he still uses her frequently. KS Norge (KS stands for Kongeskipet or The King's Ship) is one of few European Royal Yachts.

Royal Yachts

Next to Norge there is the Danish Royal Yacht Dannebrog, while the former Queen Beatrix (now Princess Beatrix) of the Netherlands owns the small sailing yacht ‘De Groene Draeck’ (the Green Dragon). King Juan Carlos of Spain gave up his luxury yacht Fortuna in 2013 as a reaction on the Spanish economic crisis.

Built as Philante

KS Norge was built as Philante in 1937 by Camper and Nicholsons for Sir Thomas Sopwith. Thomas Sopwith also owned the famous J-class yachts, Endeavour (1934) and Endeavour II (1937).

Thomas Sopwith was the founder of The Sopwith Aviation Company and later also founded Hawker Aircraft. At delivery Philante was one of the world's largest yachts.

During the Second World War the yacht Philante was used as a convoy escort vessel . After the war it was returned to Thomas Sopwith, who sold the yacht to Norway.
