PHOENIX available to charterAvailable for a myriad of uses from her home port of Charlestown Harbour on the fantastic South West Coast UK,a real opportunity to experience the sea like never before.
Built in Frederikshavn, Denmark in 1929.
She began her working life as an evangelical Mission Schooner. Twenty years later she retired from missionary work and carried cargo until her engine room was damaged by fire.
She was bought by new owners in 1974 who converted her into a Brigantine.
Purchased by Square Sail in Miami in 1987; a first aid over-haul enabled her to sail back to the UK where she underwent a complete refit.
In 1991 she was converted to the 15th century Caravel ‘Santa Maria’ for Ridley Scott’s film ‘1492 Conquest of Paradise’.
The ship was known as Santa Maria until 1996 when, due to increasing demand for period square-riggers, she was converted into the two-masted 18th Century Brig she is today, and reverted to her original name ‘Phoenix of Dell Quay’.
