Pallada is the fifth ship of the Dar Mlodziezy-class built in Poland during the 1980’s. Unlike her white- hulled sisters, Pallada has a black hull with false gunports and resembles the great Russian Barque Kruzenshtern. She is named for the Greek goddess Pallas Athena. She is owned by Dalryba, a conglomerate of fishing companies, and offers sail training to foreign marine-college cadets. Pallada sails with a compliment of 143 cadets and a permanent crew of 56 officers, teachers, and professionals.
