 |  Announcements

The world’s oldest full rigged tall ship; the Norwegian Sørlandet sailed into Hong Kong harbour on the morning of 21st June, 2016.


The ship, which was built in 1927, is on a two year circumnavigation, crewed by students from A+ World Academy, an onboard boarding school comprising of international students from six different countries.

Thanks to our vast experience in providing quality and efficient port services for a wide range of vessel types, Wallem Ship Agencies has been appointed port agent for the vessel. Wallem has therefore assisted with all pre-arrival arrangements and in-port services for the vessel’s stay in Hong Kong.

 The tall ship will remain docked at Pier 8 next to the Maritime Museum where a graduation ceremony will be held for the students of A+ World Academy.
