  • The Russian replica frigate "Shtandart"

    The russian frigate "Shtandart" came to Tromsø last night and today I was onboard her to take some photos.I thought I would be early since the cruise ship "Costa Mediterranea" also was docked early in Tromsø this morning.I managed to get some photos before the sailship was overcrowded by people.Here is a little story first to tell a bit about this seilship from Saint Petersburg,Russia

    The keel on Shtandart was stretched in 1703

    The keel of the frigate Shtandart was in 1703 extended the Olonets-yard at Ladoga seashore - the first ship in the Russian Baltic fleet. Frigate and the fleet was already suggested a huge military strategic importance for the balance of power in the Baltic Sea. Until this year, the Swedes dominated in these waters, now the Russians on the track under the leadership of Cornelius Cruys. There is much to suggest that the outcome of the battle of Poltava was influenced by the Swedes also had something to challenge themselves on the sea.


    "Shtandart" - the first ship in the Baltic Fleet

    1703 was an important year in the history of Russia: St. Petersburg was begun and "Shtandart" frigate was built as the Baltic Fleet's first ship. Henry Wessel, an older brother of Tordenskiold, serving as captain of "Shtandart" .

    The ship had a displacement of 180 tons, total length of 34.5 meters, width of 7 meters and the depth of 2.5 meters. Mast height above deck was 33 feet with a sail guide of 660 square meters of which 14 sails. Frigate was armed with a twenty guns. The ship was built in 5 months with a staff of just over 200 men.

    "Shtandart" was in service for 25 years from 1703-1728.

    Symbol of Russian shipbuilding art

    Tsar Peter the Great issued a decree saying that "Shtandart" would be preserved for all later as a symbol of Russian shipbuilding art. Shortly after his death, the ship was found so bad that it was stripped of assets and cut. His successor, Empress Catherine decided that a new "Shtandart" would be built, the decision was not upheld.


    Replicas

    On 4 November 1994 was again an oak keel stretched by Peter the Great's Admiralty in St. Petersburg - the ship was called "Shtandart" . After just under 5 years of toil, the ship was launched on 4 September 1999.

    Project "Shtandart" is a non-profit foundation, which has the following main objectives: Understanding youth leadership, teamwork, responsibility and relying on themselves and their own judgments. Through activities such as shipbuilding, sailing of small boats and larger ships frigate "Shtandart" , Russian youth to learn to cope with challenges and pull together as a community. These are all qualities that our country needs now "according to information from the Foundation.

    "Shtandart" visited Stavern(Norway) naval ship during the festival 25.-27. June 2004 where she certainly felt at home among the 1700-century buildings and cannon boom.

    Tsar Peter the Great is remembered as one of history's most enterprising rulers and reformers. That said, it should also be emphasized that the penalties were severe for those who did not dance after his pipe. He saw that his life's mission to make Russia a part of Europe. He built a naval fleet in record time, he built St. Petersburg and moved the capital there.

    At his right sat a knowledgeable Norwegian and discussed, giving advice and execution: Cornelius Cruys was his name - but no one has heard of. The correct story about the Russian navy and Cruys is, however, relayed to the world and future generations with the replica ship "Shtandart" .

    The ship "Shtandart" (which is the name of the royal Russian flag) is a training ship, and 35 people are on board, "says Captain Vladimir Martus, who also built the ship. 25 of the crew are trainees.

            Thank you Sterkoder for your comments.Yes is certenly nice to see something different from the usual ships float around.

            I am not sure if Tromsø was her final stop so far,but I will try to check this up.I do now that they will be back in Saint Petersburg in october/november later this year.She came directly from Trondheim to Tromsø last night.

            EDIT: I spoke to the port Control a few minutes ago,and he told me he had heard they was talking about sailing up to Kirkenes.They are probaly sailing tomorrow afternoon or early saturday.So I will keep and eye on them.

              I guess I'll have to keep my eyes open then, if she will sail back to St. Petersburg. She HAS to pass Kristiansund... (Hope 'pass' will not be a key word here, rather 'visit' ).
              Lucky for me she's sending signals to the AIS system, so I have a chanse to keep track of her whereabouts.

                    Thank you Asimut. You enlightened my morning in the office. It is such a beautiful wooden handicraft. It is a great idea to put all the modern equipment in a wooden secretary so it can be hidden completely to preserve the historic look. I also like these interior pictures most, it gives a view to the living on board. It was very friendly of the crew to let you have a view in there.

                      Fantastic report from Tromsø - and fabulous images!

                      I enjoyed those images tremendously...

                      Is all that REAL wood? Amazing details... look at the navigation desk!

                      I'm certainly really envious of your visit on board... I bet it was an amazing experience stepping on board!

                      I wonder what kind of wood they have used for the most part on this vessel?

                      Thank you very much once again Asimut for this thread, and for these images... I rated this thread Excellent right away!

                        Same as the original. Larch planking over oak double sawn frames.
                        8000 massive handmade nails were made to keep it together...

                          Hopefully, Asimut won't be too mad at me, but I circled the AIS unit...
