OUR FLEET

OUR BRIGANTINES

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.

OUR NAVY WHALERS

Bytown Brigantine has two Navy Whalers. Traditionally, these vessels were used as training boats by the Canadian Navy and are very popular with our Ottawa River Adventures for sailing and exploring.

AGNES IRVING & ALAN E. JACQUES

These whalers are incredibly sturdy 27-foot traditional navy boats that can be sailed or pulled with sweeps (oars). 

Designed for use in any water body, including oceans, they have two masts and are equipped with a lug-rigged mainsail, a driving mizzen, 20HP diesel outboards, and a set of long sweeps.

OUR BARGES

Bytown Brigantine utilizes two 40-foot barges to provide support for our adventures on the Ottawa River. The two barges are moored at the island during the summer months.

THE STANLEY CARSON BUNK BARGE AND SUPPLY BARGE

The Stanley Carson Bunk Barge is an authentic logging bunk-house used by loggers on the Ottawa River. The two-story barge provides accommodations and cooking facilities for up to 30 people.

The second barge is a well-stocked supply barge, large enough to carry vehicles and equipment.
