Restaurationen

Starting at: $7.00

Sloop built 1801 at Hardanger, Norway. On July 5 1825 the sloop Restaurasjonen left from Stavanger with 52 people aboard. This is considered to be the first organized emigration party to leave from Norway. The emigrants who sailed on this ship has later been known as "the sloopers". In the different sources we find several ways of spelling the name of this ship, like Restauration, Restoration, Restaurasjonen and Restorasjon.
