Based out of Milwaukee and built by 900 volunteers in 2000, this 137-foot-long re-creation of a Great Lakes schooner specializes as an educational ship for children fifth through 12th grade. “It’s a slightly smaller ship, but it’s much more of a student training vessel,” says Marinucci.
With its home port in Nova Scotia, Canada, and a crew of about 52 people, this 179-foot-long barque has logged more than 150,000 nautical miles. “It is a boat that travels the world,” says Marinucci. “It’s completing its seventh trip around the world as we speak.”

Porting in Erie, Pennsylvania, this 198-foot sailing vessel is a reproduction of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry’s victorious flagship from the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812. “The main mast is about 120 feet above water,” says Marinucci. “That would equate to four streetlight poles.”
