The barque, built in shipyard Kiel (Germany) in 1921, was first named «Magdalena Vinnen». Originally it was used to carry out cargoes between ports of Europe and South America, Australia, South Eastern Asia and Oceania. In 1936 the barque was sold to the shipping company «Norddeutsche Lloyd», was then renamed in «Commodor Jensen» and had been equipped to accommodate 70 training persons. Since that time it was used as a training vessel for cadets of specialized navy schools and for carrying out cargoes as well. In 1945 the ship passed in to the hands of the Soviet Union under German reparation payments. The barque was named the «Sedov» after a polar explorer G.Ya. Sedov (1877-1914), and re-equipped to accommodate 164 cadets. The «Sedov» has been entered into the «Guinness Book of Records» as the biggest sailing ship in the world.
