ABOUT THE SHIP
The Privateer Lynx is a powerful 122 foot Top Sail Schooner that looks like an apparition from the past. In reality, she is a modern sailing ship inspired by an earlier Lynx built in 1812, that served as a war machine in her day. The ship’s story is that of a young America, fighting to free herself from English domination. With virtually no navy of its own but plenty of Yankee ingenuity, Americans used “Privateers” like the Lynx to fight the empire that ruled the seas. Today’s Lynx honors that tradition.
