Believed to be one of the last sailing keels to be built, DANUM ran grain from Hull to Doncaster or Rotherham originally for Thomas Hanley and Sons, Millers. She is a part 1 registered ship, registration number 163114.
A posed photo of DANUM under sail shows her crew with towing harnesses, possibly only surviving view in England. She has been preserved with very little change to her exterior. After many take-overs, Hanleys became part of Rank, Hovis, and McDougall.
DANUM motored to France in 1983 and is currently located there, based in St Jean de Losne, still with her logo.
Vessel built by Richard Thorne in Dunston
