The Peacemaker was built using traditional methods in Brazil using tropical hardwoods.

Capt. Larry Clinton - Peacemaker
'"It was built as a private yacht, it wasn't a cargo vessel or a fishing vessel or a Navy vessel. Consequently it is finished a little bit more detailed then most."

When the Peacemaker changed ownership, she was brought to the US and refitted as a 3-masted barquentine. Her current mission is to be a sea-going representation of peace and unity. The Peacemaker offers apprenticeship opportunities for youth.

Capt. Larry Clinton - Peacemaker
"We are kind of a self contained city. We can teach electrical on here because we have our electric department, so to speak, pluming, carpentry, mechanics, besides all the aspects of the sailing and working together."
