Local Tall Ships
Kalmar Nyckel As the official Tall Ship of Delaware, the Kalmar Nyckel serves as Delaware’s seagoing goodwill ambassador. She was built by a group of committed citizens to be a continuing witness to the courage and spirit of those individuals who undertook the mid-winter North Atlantic crossing in 1637-1638.
A.J. Meerwald The A. J. Meerwald, the official Tall Ship of New Jersey, is a Delaware Bay oyster schooner, a distinct vessel that evolved to meet the needs of the local oyster fishery. Launched in 1928, the A. J. Meerwald was one of hundreds of schooners built along South Jersey's Delaware Bayshore before the decline of the shipbuilding industry that coincided with the Great Depression.
Gazela The barkentine Gazela serves as the official Tall Ship of Philadelphia and is maintained by the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild at Penn's Landing. She was built in Portugal to carry fishermen to the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. Every spring she would leave Lisbon laden with as many as 35 dories stacked on deck like drinking cups and a crew of 40 men (35 fishermen/sailors, two cooks, two mates and the captain) and a couple of apprentices.
