Kobenhavn was built as a training vessel for Danish cadets and until 1928 she traded all over the world, carrying a variety of cargoes and earning a reputation for her sailing ability and smart appearance. During the 1920s she visited Australia on three occasions, including Melbourne in 1926.

After her contact with the William Blumer on December 17, 1928, nothing further was heard from the Kobenhavn. Searches were made along the coastline of Africa and Australia and the islands of the Southern Ocean were visited to look for survivors and wreckage, but to this day no identifiable wreckage from her has ever been found. Perhaps she was capsized by some huge wave or she struck an iceberg and sank very quickly. Many icebergs were sighted in the Southern Ocean that summer. Whatever happened, all 45 of her cadets and 15 crew were lost, with their families having no knowledge of how they died.
