Nation's Oldest City

St. Augustine, Florida

Schooner Freedom

Freedom is an authentic replica of a 19th century blockade runner. She is a 72′, double masted, gaff-rigged, topsail schooner. She was built in Norfolk, VA in 1982 by famed Naval architect Merritt Walters, the first of his many Rover schooners.

The Freedom was the first sailing tour boat to be certified under the Coast Guard sub-chapter ‘T’ to carry passengers to hire. Freedom is frequently inspected by the USCG and carries all of the equipment necessary to ensure a safe and fun outing.
