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
