Statsraad Lehmkuhl was built in Germany in 1914, and was used as a training vessel for German Merchant Marines until the end of World War I, when it was taken as a prize by England.

In 1921, England sold the ship to Norway, who used the ship as a training vessel. In 1940, the Germans confiscated the ship and held it until 1944, when it was returned to Norway.

It's now used as a training vessel for Norwegian Naval Academy Cadets.
