The Earl Of Pembroke
We would like to invite you to a different world, to a different age, to the age of sail – a world of wooden ships crossing the high seas, romantic voyages, and great discoveries.
Earl of Pembroke offers its decks for you to feel like a Tall Ship sailor of the past while on a voyage of discovery.
Why Earl of Pembroke, you may ask? In 1768, Captain Cook set off on a voyage that was to change history. He was to be remembered as the discoverer of Australia. He sailed aboard the vessel acquired by the Royal Navy, which was renamed HMS Endeavour. Yes, you have guessed it! Before its acquisition by the navy, this famous ship used to be named Earl of Pembroke.
It was in 1985 when this great sailing ship was bestowed with the rig resembling the one under which Captain Cook made his great discovery. It was then when the Earl of Pembroke earned its name.
