The project ships of Ocean College are the “Pelican of London”, the “Fridtjof Nansen” and the “Regina Maris”. The “Pelican of London” is the only “Mainmast Barquentine” in the world and is specially built and equipped for worldwide sailing with young people. The “Fridtjof Nansen” is a three-masted tall ship schooner with a broad jib and has been undergoing an extensive refit since summer 2022 to meet the requirements of Ocean College and Seas Your Future. The “Regina Maris” was the first ship Ocean College ever sailed with and the crew has a lot of experience with the route.
