The full scale replica of the Lady Washington launched on March 7. 1989 and was built in Aberdeen, WA.
The original Lady Washington was given a major refit after the Revolutionary War in 1787 to be prepared for a unprecedented trading voyage around Cape Horn.
And in 1788 she became the first American vessel to make landfall on the west coast of North America.
She was a pioneer in the Pan-Pacific trade, was the first American ship to visit Honolulu and Japan.
The modern Lady Washington, constructed as a brig, was thoroughly researched by historians and then traditionally constructed by skilled shipwrights, then launched as part of the 1988 Washington State Centennial celebration. She is a US Coast Guard inspected and certified passenger sailing vessel.
She also appeared in several motion pictures and tv shows, including Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Once Upon a Time and more.
