The 4-masted steel-hulled bark was built in 1926 at Geestemünde in Bremerhaven, Germany, as the Padua.
After the Second World war it was surrendered to the Soviet Union as war reparation and renamed after the 19th century Baltic German explorer in Russian service, Adam Johann Krusenstern (1770–1846). The 115m Krusenstern has a draft of 7m and carries 3,631 sq. m of sail.
