The royal yacht Dannebrog was built at the naval dockyard and became part of the navy in 1932, when it replaced the previous royal yacht of the same name, a paddle steamer from 1879. Dannebrog, which is at the disposal of the monarch, has a deplacement of 1130 tons and is 80 m long. She is often used by the royal couple during the summer for visits to Danish provincial towns, but has often been in Greenlandic waters as well, a use of the ship that was started by King Frederik IX, who himself was a naval officer, and which has since been continued by his daughter, the now reigning Queen Margrethe II.
