Sjaelland (Princess Selandia)

Sjælland

The Sjaelland, registered in Korsør, Denmark, sits at anchor in Buccleuch Dock next to Morrisons car park, where it serves Barrow as coffee shop, restaurant, bar and nightclub. Its future is chronically uncertain and as long as I’ve been living here it’s been about to sail to a new location in Liverpool. As of today, however, it’s still there and still open and doing almost negligable trade (but then I’ve never been there in the evening or at night.)

It’s a great shame that the Sjaelland, or Princess Selandia as it’s owners prefer to call it, isn’t a Barrow-built boat. It was built at Århus and spent a previous existence plying between Korsør and Nyborg bearing trains, cars and passengers.
