The SSV Oliver Hazard Perry

Sails on the horizon in the Northwest Passage as tall ship plans summer voyage. This should be interesting.

The first tall ship in more than 100 years will sail through the Northwest Passage this summer, according to voyage organizers.

The SSV Oliver Hazard Perry looks like a traditional 19th century sailing ship with three masts and square sails, but its steel hull and twin engines will give it better odds of making the journey than explorers from the 1800s.

Good one Tony Allen. The upcoming Anchorage to New York on the Crystal Serenity starts at a base price of like 22K USD per person. My bucket has a very large hole in it. This a 32-day voyage.

Was along side the ship a couple of weeks ago, she was docked at the old Fort Adams berth at Rhode Island. Will have to post a couple of photos I took.
