Discover
our Fleet

Before you set sail!

Fair Jeanne and Black Jack are the core of our fleet. Both are brigantines – this means that they have two masts, one with square sails (in front) and one with fore-and-aft sails (in back). They’re built in the style of traditional 18th century tall ships, but they are modern in every way.

We also have a support fleet: two navy whalers (27-foot sailing vessels), a supply barge and a two-storey bunk barge, all used at Black Jack camps.
