it is made out of 1 million lego breaks and created to celebrate the 150th anniversary of DFDS and is now officially in the Guiness World Record Books.


The boat, which was constructed in the company’s brand colours of blue and white, was built using over one million interlocking plastic bricks and weighs a whopping 2,860 kg.

Niels Smedegaard, CEO of DFDS says 

“ the main aim was to celebrate our 150th anniversary together by building something big to mark such an outstanding anniversary. It has been important for us for colleagues from all locations in Europe across national boundaries to be given the opportunity to make their mark on this beautiful ship. I am proud that together we have reached this goal.”

It took 900 person hours to build and thousands of DFDS employees from across the globe got on board, assisted in the challenge by a few LEGO building professionals.
