Biography


The design and build of Tunas Samudera was jointly funded by the British and Malaysian governments.  She was handed over to the Malaysian Navy in 1989 in a joint ceremony by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Majesty Yan Di-Pertuan Agong.  The ship is operated as a sail training vessel by the Royal Malaysian Navy, but training voyages are run for civilian youth groups as well as navy cadets.  Her name means @Offspring of the Ocean@.  She is a sister ship to the Australian Navy’s Young Endeavour which was built in the same yard two years earlier.
