  • Bluenose II
    The original Bluenose was launched as a Grand Banks fishing and racing schooner on 26 March 1921 in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. It was designed by William Roué and built by the Smith and Rhuland Shipyard. Bluenose II is operated by the Lunenburg Marine Museum Society on behalf of the Province of Nova Scotia. It's hard to imagine that on March 26th in 1921, those present on the shore of Lunenburg knew what would come of the day's festivities. They were there to launch the Bluenose. What they set in motion was a legacy that continues to this day. As Nova Scotia's sailing ambassador, Bluenose II plays a meaningful role for our province. Its mission involves promoting our maritime heritage and maintaining a connection to the legacy of Bluenose. It provides the opportunity to experience sailing tradition and serves as a welcoming representative of its home. Visitors can join us for a harbour cruise in our home port of Lunenburg or in one of the other ports on our schedule. Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada

  • Blyth Tall Ship
    200 years ago Captain William Smith, raised the funds to build a state of the art sailing vessel in Blyth and embarked on a voyage to trade around the world. Having been pirated by the Spanish in 1818 he tried to recoup his losses by taking cargo around Cape Horn (the most treacherous seas in the world) and was met by westerly gales. During a desperate attempt to sail around the storms, he discovered the first land in Antarctica, now called the Southern Shetland Islands. Sadly he was never recognised for his discovery and died a pauper. We intend to put him back in his rightful place in history by repeating his voyage and boat building endeavours. Blyth Tall Ship has acquired a 100 year old Baltic Trader, with the help of the Heritage Lottery Fund, that we hope to refit and recreate the original voyage of Captain William Smith that discovered the first land in Antarctica in 1819. She is almost exactly the same hull size and configuration as the original Williams although with a vastly more efficient rig from that of a Brig. Alnwick, Northumberland, England, UK

The Draken continue that legacy by exploring the oceans to inspire and educate people about the ocean as the foundation for life and a healthy planet. 115 feet from stem to stern, 26 feet wide, 260 square meters of silk sail and a 79 feet tall mast made from Douglas fir. She is a seaworthy ship, able to sail the Oceans of the World. At a hundred and fourteen feet of crafted oak, twenty-seven feet on the beam, displacing eighty tons, and with a thirty-two hundred square foot sail, this magnificent ship is indeed worthy of a king. Norway's leading experts in traditional boat building and the square sail were engaged in the development and construction of the ship. The construction is an experimental archaeological research program, and the aim was to recreate a ship with the superb seaworthiness that characterized the ocean going long ships in the Viking Age.

    The U.S. Brig Niagara, home-ported in Erie, Pennsylvania, is a faithful reconstruction of Oliver Hazard Perry's relief flagship during the Battle of Lake Erie. An embodiment of the dual mission of the Erie Maritime Museum and Flagship Niagara League, she serves as the centerpiece exhibit of the Erie Maritime Museum as well as a sail training vessel, part of an experiential learning program to preserve the art of historic square-rig seamanship. Perhaps the original vessel's most pivotal hour came on September 10, 1813 at the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812. At the battle's climax, Oliver Hazard Perry transferred from his original flagship Lawrence to Niagara, raised his battle flag emblazoned with the words "Don't Give Up the Ship", and ordered the brig for "close action" – severing the British line and leading to the enemy's unconditional surrender.

  • Hermione, freedom's frigate
    In 1778, in Rochefort's arsenal, the Hermione started to be built on a construction hold near the Corderie Royale. Over 210 feet from stern to bow, with 16.000 square feet of sail spread over 3 masts, the Hermione was built according to plans by the engineer Chevillard Aîné With the Courageuse, the Concorde and the Fée, the Hermione was part of a group of 4 frigates built in Rochefort. Belonging to the category of so-called light frigates, characterized by their speed and agility, the Hermione was fitted out with 26 cannons shooting 12-pound cannonballs, hence its name "frigate of 12". With a length of 1732 and a width of 433 the frigate took 11 months of work for one hundred carpenters, blacksmiths, drillers, caulkers and convicts for a total of more than 35,000 days of work. The ambition of the Hermione-La Fayette Association is to reconstruct the original frigate a ship more than 200ft long, carrying three masts and a sail surface of 16,000 square feet, with a hull entirely made of oak as authentically as possible, while taking into account modern statutory constraints concerning seaworthiness.

  • HMB Endeavour
    The Australian-built replica of James Cook's HMB Endeavour is one of the world's most accurate maritime replica vessels. When you come on board you may wonder whether James Cook and his crew have just stepped ashore somewhere on their voyage. The table is set, clothes are hung and the cat is slumbering. Construction of the Endeavour replica began in 1988 and the ship was launched 5 years later. Since then, she has sailed over 170,000 nautical miles twice around the world, visited 29 countries and many Pacific islands, and opened as a museum in 116 ports. Hundreds of thousands of visitors have come on board to see how Cook and his men lived. Pyrmont NSW Australia

  • HMS Beagle Project
    The HMS Beagle Project will use hands-on learning to engage young people with science, while delivering original biodiversity and climate change research. We are working to use a sailing ship similar to the one that carried Charles Darwin on ‘the most important event’ of his life. Built of larch and oak, the modern Beagle will use GPS navigation, satellite communications and modern safety equipment. A round-the-world sailing voyage is a unique adventure. The modern Beagle will retrace one of the most famous journeys in history, which stopped at many ports across the world from South America to Australia to South Africa. Based in the UK

  • HMS Warrior Preservation Trust
    As you arrive at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the stunning sleek, black lines of Britain's first iron-hulled, armoured warship, take your breath away. Warrior, launched in 1860, was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day and had a profound effect on naval architecture. Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet within a few years she was obsolete. Restored and back at home in Portsmouth, Warrior now serves as museum, monument & visitor attraction and is open year round for you to experience for yourself. HM Naval Base Portsmouth, Hampshire, UK

  • Hudson River Sloop Clearwater
    In 1966, folk music legend and environmental activist Pete Seeger, in despair over the pollution of his beloved Hudson River, announced plans to "build a boat to save the river." Inspired by that vision, the 106-feet-long sloop Clearwater was built and launched in 1969. The sloop was among the first vessels in the U.S. to conduct science-based environmental education aboard a sailing ship, virtually creating the template by which such programs are conducted around the world today. Also offering Public Sail Adventures, Educational Group Sails, and Private and Corporate Charters. Beacon, New York

  • Jeanie Johnston
    The original Jeanie Johnston was built in Quebec in Canada in 1847 by Scottish-born shipbuilder and master craftsman, John Munn. It was purchased by Kerry-based merchants, John Donovan and Sons. Originally intended as a cargo ship, she ended up carrying a very different kind of cargo – desperate men, women and children fleeing the Famine. She carried emigrants out to Canada and brought timber back. She made her maiden voyage from Blennerville, Co. Kerry to Quebec, Canada in 1848 with 193 passengers on board. She transported 2,500 Irish emigrants on 16 transatlantic voyages to North America. This ship is an authentic replica of the original Jeanie Johnston. The re-creation of the ship was one of the most ambitious maritime heritage projects ever undertaken in Ireland. Dublin, Ireland
