SEDOV / MAGDALENE VINNEN used to be the largest sailing vessel since the 5-masted barque KØBENHAVN went lost early in 1929. Today she still is the biggest sail training vessel. Currently the biggest square rigged vessel is the 5-masted ship ROYAL CLIPPER (see fine pictures of her in the Tall Ships folder).

I did not say that ROYAL CLIPPER is the biggest sailing vessel because this can be disputed. If one calls the CLUB MED 2 a sailing vessel then she is the biggest. At least she has 5 masts and carries some staysails.

In her trading days MAGDALENE VINNEN / KOMMODORE JOHNSON was not classed as a sailing vessel because she had an auxiliary engine. Auxiliary sailing vessels were a class of their own. The biggest pure sailing vessel in the 1930s was the 4-masted barque MOSHULU, still lying in Philadelphia.

Your picture captures the elegance of this once freight carrying training vessel well. Her new paint scheme suits her a lot better.
