Sailing School Vessel (Subchapter R)

Story

Sea Education Center’s newest vessel, launched in the spring of 2001, was built at JM Martinac Shipbuilding in Tacoma, Washington. Designed by Laurent Giles of Hampshire, England, the 134-foot steel brigantine is the most sophisticated sailing research vessel ever built in the United States. Improvements in design and equipment, including a wet/dry laboratory and a large library, classroom, and computer laboratory, will enhance the SEA academic program. The new vessel is conducting SEA Semesters in the Pacific with cruise tracks including Hawaii, Costa Rica, Alaska, and Tahiti.
