The Royal Yacht Dannebrog

During the summer, the Royal Family tours the Danish waters onboard Danneborg, the Royal Yacht. The yacht is also used for official visits abroad.

The Royal Yacht Dannebrog was launched for the first time on 26 May 1932 and was named by Queen Alexandrine in 1931. It serves as the official and private residence for the royal couple and other members of the royal family when they are on their summer cruise in Danish waters and on official visits abroad.

The royal quarters consist of the Queen and Prince Consort’s studies, dining room, communal salon, and sleeping cabin. The royal quarters contain furniture and decor from the previous royal yacht from 1879. The Queen and the Prince Consort have also taken a personal interest in deciding on the interior design.

The crew on Dannebrog consists of nine officers, seven sergeants, to constables and 35 conscripts, who have been specially selected from the Navy. The officers are usually contracted for a two to four year period while the conscripts only join the cruise for one summer.

The summer cruise embarks from Copenhagen Harbour under the firing of a salute from the battery of Sixtus and Kronborg. The cruise takes the royal couple to all parts of Denmark and ends in the late summer, when the royal couple officially disembark in Copenhagen.
