PRIDE OF BALTIMORE II

PRIDE OF BALTIMORE IIPRIDE OF BALTIMORE II - click to enlarge
The Virginia-built schooners of the late 1700's and the early 1800's helped win the war for independence, and established the city of Baltimore as a major shipbuilding center. Known as Baltimore Clippers, many were used as privateers during the War of 1812. Sleek, light, and exceptionally fast, they could overtake and seize the enemy with ease, obstructing British shipping and earning huge profits for their owners.

In 1974 Baltimore city officials decided to build a replica of a 19th century clipper to serve as a goodwill ambassador for the city. The ship, named Pride of Baltimore was launched at Baltimore's Inner Harbor on February 27, 1977. She was lost at sea during a hurricane on May 14, 1986. The city commissioned a larger sister-ship, and the Pride of Baltimore II was launched on April 30, 1989.
