According to Fox 25, the Sørlandet will be docked at Fan Pier from April 9-14 to promote Sail Boston that will take place in June. People can board the boat for free between April 10-12 from 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm.

 

 

Sail Boston is a non-profit organization that hosts international tall ships and vessels in Boston. It has hosted over 300 ships so far.

This would be a great day trip up to Boston with the kids to learn about the history of this boat!
