Famed whaling vessel, the Charles W. Morgan, the world's last surviving wooden whaling ship and America's oldest merchant ship, will tour historic New England ports, with a stop in Boston harbor, in summer 2014. Since 1941 the ship's home has been at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut. After a $7.5M renovation and a 5-year restoration project, the 380-ton, 106-foot-long ship will tour New England with stops in New Bedford, MA; New London, CT; Newport, R.I.; Provincetown, MA; and Vineyard Haven, MA in summer of 2014.
The Morgan will be in Boston, Charlestown Navy Yard, July 18-22. She'll be berthed next to the USS Constitution and open to the public, along with a dockside exhibition put together by Mystic Seaport. For information visit www.mysticseaport.org/38thvoyage.
