Events with a Viking Longship

If you are planning an event to which a Viking longship would be a welcome addition, be it a dramatic recreation of a coastal raid, an impressive centrepiece or a novel backdrop, then look no further.

On-water

A menacing longship lurking off the coast; a trading ship bringing in exotic goods; a party of Viking raiders storming ashore, or a 1000 year old naval engagement, the ships are always most impressive on the water.

Off-water

If circumstances do not permit sailing and rowing on the water, then why not recreate a boat burial? Or you could bring the water to you – a beached ship and some well-placed shingle will create the illusion of a beach at low tide.

On-trailer

As the larger boats need a crane to load and unload them from transit, the easiest and quickest way to display them is to wheel them in on a trailer straight to wherever you want. Notwithstanding the trailer, a 30′ long Viking ship is always a sight to behold.
