The Yankee Clipper Foundation has just purchased a new vessel to replace the old YANKEE CLIPPER.
This is no ordinary boat — it is a Navy 44-foot Mk1 Sail Training Craft that was used at the US Naval Academy to teach midshipmen how to sail.
It was formerly named “SWIFT” and was featured on a US Postage stamp honoring the 150th Anniversary of the Academy!
We are very excited to be bringing this boat to Seattle — it arrived here mid-March, 2022.
Stay tuned for the latest developments…..
