Albatross, originally named Albatros, later, was a sailing ship built as a schooner at the state shipyard in Amsterdam, Netherlands, in 1920, to serve as a pilot boat in the North Sea.
Albatros was built in Baltimore in 1840 and was fitted with a gun deck. The shape of her slim and elegant hull was inspired by French frigates that frequently came to port along the American coast.
The schooners became a popular sight first along both American coasts and later on further afield. On the west coast, they were mainly used to transport timber whereas on the east coast their main cargo was coal.

L’Albatros est une élégante goélette équipée d?un pont à canons qui fut construite en 1840 à Baltimore. La forme élancée de sa coque et le tracé du pont ont été inspirés des frégates françaises qui faisaient en ce temps-là régulièrement escale dans les ports de la côte américaine. Les premières goélettes se répandirent très vite sur les deux côtes des USA et ailleurs par la suite également. Elles étaient essentiellement destinées, sur la côte ouest, au transport du bois alors que leur cargaison, sur la côte est, se constituait principalement de charbon.
