HISTORY

Jylland is the world's last screw-propelled steam frigate, launched on November 20, 1860. During the Second War of Schleswig in 1864, it participated in the naval action against the Austrian-Prussian fleet in the Battle of Heligoland on 9 May 1864. Jylland along with the Niels Juel and Heimdall bested two Austrian frigates and 3 small Prussian gun boats, but were unable to maintain the blockade of the Prussian North Sea ports. Jylland sustained considerable damage during the battle.

In the 1890s the ship was reduced to stationary use and barely escaped scrapping in 1908. It was, however, decided to preserve her and she was towed to Ebeltoft in 1960. The hulked frigate further deteriorated until she was placed in dry dock in 1984. Restoration proved to be a major task; over 60% of the timber had to be replaced in addition to the rigging, armament, engines and loose gear.

In Danish, the ship is known as simply Fregatten Jylland, although several ships have used this name. The restoration efforts were completed in 1994 and the ship is currently on display in the town of Ebeltoft, Denmark. It is advertised as one of the world's largest wooden ships.
