Built in Denmark just after the Second World War, the Kaskelot began her career as a supply ship in the icy waters of Greenland, before becoming a fishing vessel in the Faroe Islands, halfway between Norway and Iceland.
Her reinforced hull allows her, like the mammal after which she is named, to withstand the pressure of the ice. In 1983, she was bought by the British businessman Robin Davies. Change of course: in the hands of her new owner, she was refitted and launched on a career in film and television!
She has appeared in British and French series such as Treasure Island and La Rivière Espérance, and in films, such as Edouard Molinaro’s Beaumarchais the Scoundrel with Fabrice Luchini.
