Hull Wood
Summerwind was originally built in 1929 at the yard of C.A. Morse of Thomaston, ME. Following a long career on the east coast of the United States including service in the Coastal Picket Patrol during World War II, she was brought to the Med. where she operated as a passenger vessel for several decades. In 2007 she was repatriated to the United States where a complete two year rebuild was undertaken. After being relaunched in 2009, she was donated to the United States Merchant Marine Academy where she now serves as a sail training vessel for Midshipmen and flagship of the fleet.
