The Sea Stallion from Glendalough is a 30 metre long reconstruction of the great longship Skuldelev 2.

The ship is a war machine, built to carry many warriors at high speed. It is a bold design, both heavy and strong enough to carry its 112 m² sail, but also sufficiently light and long to be rowed by a crew of 60. A compromise between strength and lightness.
