De Forenede Sejskibe in Copenhagen was established in 2010 with the aim of creating new experiences for both residents and visitors to the city, and at the same time give our proud maritime traditions a place in the Copenhagen cityscape.
De Forenede Sejskibe is a collaboration between two of the most well-maintained Danish schooners – the two-masted schooner Halmø and the topsail schooner Lilla Dan. During the sailing season, you can find beautiful wooden ships in front of the Admiral Hotel in Copenhagen, close to Nyhavn, where they are moored.
The ships are owned by Copenhagen Admiral Hotel and Rederiet J. Lauritzen respectively, and by entering into this collaboration, we have the opportunity to offer both ships for largescale, meaningful events.
The ships are chartered for everything from business meetings and team building to weddings and birthdays. In collaboration with SALT Restaurant, which is housed in the Admiral Hotel's old warehouse, we can also offer beautifully composed menus for the ships' events.
We are to make your ideas come true, and to launch a memorable and fantastic day for you.
The core of United Sailing Ships is to arrange amazing, unique and memorable events. We are lucky to have such authentic and beautiful settings to work with as Lilla Dan and Halmø. In addition to offering rental of our ships for events, we also offer short sailing trips with Halmø, and sailing cruises with Lilla Dan during the summer months of the season.
