HDMS Peder Skram (F352) was a Peder Skram class frigate in the Royal Danish Navy which was in use until 1990. It is now docked at Holmen in Copenhagen where it serves as a privately operated museum ship along with the ships of the Royal Danish Naval Museum. The ship is named after Peder Skram, a 16th-century Danish admiral.



Peder Skram was an innovative design using a hybrid propulsion system, a combined gas turbine and diesel approach (CODOG).[1] Peder Skram underwent significant refit in 1970 and a midlife update 1977–78 [2]

1982 Harpoon missile incident

In 1982 Peder Skram was involved in the accidental launch of a Harpoon missile, fortunately without inflicting bodily harm.


Peder Skram was decommissioned in 1990, internal installations were auctioned off as scrap two years later. In the mid-1990s it was decided to restore her as a museum ship.
