Schooner Sultana - Home Port: Chestertown, MD
Schooner Sultana
Photo Tour   
The recently constructed schooner “Sultana” is one of two mobile Chesapeake Bay Gateways. This traditional 18th century ship, based out of Chestertown, Maryland, sails the Bay providing hands-on education in the history and natural environment of the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed.

The modern Sultana represents one of the earliest examples of schooner building in North America. The original ship was the smallest schooner ever registered on the British Royal Navy Lists. As a vessel of mixed American and British heritage, Sultana has roots on both sides of the Atlantic and was on the scene when the American colonists took their first steps toward independence.

Today, the Sultana is a floating classroom for learning about colonial maritime history, as well as the rich ecosystems of the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays.

Fees: There are no fees to view the vessel when it is berthed. Contact the shipyard for fees for the educational programs.
