Noske Løve 3rd rate, 1765 (With Plans)

Recommended Posts

The NORSKE LOEVE was built in 1765 by the Nyholm shipyard, close to Copenhagen. The ship was named after the Norwegian Lion and the Danish-Norwegian Imperial Coat of Arms. There was a crew of 667 men and an armament of 70 iron cannons, with 26 cannons 24 pd. on the lower deck, 26 cannons 18 pd. on the middle deck and 18 cannons 8 pd. on the upper deck. All ornaments, made by the sculptor C. Moellerup, were reminders of Norway. On the transom there is a fisherman and a farmer, symbolizing the most important trades of Norway, agriculture and fishing.

Beatifull ship. Nice to see that the later era ships could still be highly decorated and build along the lines of a ship, instead of the lines of a frigate.

Hate to keep repeating myself but like this ship too.  I also like the fact this ship is Danish-Norwegian instead of English, French or Spanish.  I think it they included enough of these minor faction ships in game, I might not sail a single British, French of Spanish ship.

Norske Løve blueprints can be found on the Orlogsbaden website.  However, in a strange twist the older 1734 prints are the more complete set compared to the other Norske Løve from 1764.

I love that ship!

That model is totally wrong though, or it's a model of an older ship with the same name (there was one from the 1600's too). There used to be a great model of Den Norske Løve at my local library, but it got removed many years ago.

Would be nice to get them then maybe the Norske Løve would have a chance to get voted and built again and if it is the older model who cares :)

On the transom there is a fisherman and a farmer, symbolizing the most important trades of Norway, agriculture and fishing.


The Norske Loeve was used as a guard ship in the Oeresund and other Danish waters. In 1795, after having been stripped into a block ship, she was used to give shelter for homeless families after the fire in Copenhagen the same year. In 1798 she was deleted from the naval register.

I bought ship from a seller who told me this ship was the Swedish Vasa.
I did a bit of research and regardless the Swedish flags it looks more like the Norske Löwe to me?
Could anyone help me out?
