THE FRIGATE SHTANDART [A REPLICA]

    THE FRIGATE SHTANDART [A REPLICA]


    The frigate Shtandart (Russian: Штандартъ) was the first ship of Russia’s Baltic fleet. Her keel was laid on April 24, 1703 at the Olonetsky shipyard near Olonets by the decree of Tsar Peter I and orders issued by Commander Aleksandra Menshikov. The vessel was built by the Dutch shipwright Vybe Gerens under the direct supervision of the tsar. She was the first flagship of the Imperial Russian Navy and was in service until 1727. The name Shtandart was also given to the royal yachts of the tsars until the Russian Revolution in 1917. Tsar Nicholas II’s royal yacht was last of this series.

    The modern Frigate Shtandart is the exact replica of the man-of-war built by Peter the Great in 1703 in order to defend Saint Petersburg.  Modern Shtandart was built in 1999 and it is a functional training tallship. The original crew complement in 1703 was between 120 and 150, and the modern crew consists of 30 trainees and 10 officers.
