Viking Longboat

All posts tagged Viking Longboat

The largest replica Viking longship ever built is seen here arriving in Peel today. The Dragon Harald Fairhair, hand-built in Norway over a period of two years will spend one night moored on Peel Quayside.

The longship’s length (57ft/35m) is about half the size of a football pitch and it has 25 pairs of oars.

The longship was named after Harald Fairhair, the king who unified Norway.
