The Pride of Baltimore II recreates a Baltimore Clipper that fought during the War of 1812. The ship's design made it fast and agile to outmaneuver larger british ships.

Jill Hughes - Chief Mate, Pride of Baltimore II
"We are trying to represent a privateer. So we have some cannons aboard the boat. Then a lot of old technologies. Lots of lines, rigging, a windless, ships wheel, period stuff."

Come aboard and you might be surprised.

Jill Hughes - Chief Mate, Pride of Baltimore II
"We all live aboard the boat. There are 12 of us total, so I think thats a shock. They are also surprised sometimes that the boat even sails. We sail from port to port, we sail as much as we can. We are always up in the rigging climbing, and so that surprises people to."
