The Kajsamoor is Charlestown’s resident classic ship. She is a two-masted ketch, with the mizzen mast shorter than the main mast and stepped forward of the helm. This type of vessel is also known as a Galleass-rigged square-topsail schooner. She was built in 1939 in Norway, and originally registered in the port of Tallin. As she was launched at the beginning of World War II, she was quickly requisitioned by the German Navy for use as a naval training vessel. After the war, she returned to civil service as a cargo ship. The Kajsamoor arrived in Charlestown on 8th May 2017 and since that time has been used on many film productions, including Poldark, Taboo and Frontier. We also enjoy relationships with a range of other classic vessels upon whom we can call on for film work. These include the larger tall ships through to smaller ships such as a Gaff Cutter. These vessels are well-versed in both film production and in filming within Charlestown Harbour and the surrounding coastline.
