The Liberty Fleet of Tall Ships was founded in 1993 to pursue a dream of offering sailing outings on traditional tall ships. The fleet currently includes the tall ships Liberty Clipper and Liberty Star, gaff-rigged schooners modeled after 19th-century vessels once known for their speed and agility. The company has been operating day sails in Boston Harbor for 20 years, and the fleet returns home for the summer sailing season from June through September. On board, guests have the opportunity to temporarily become part of the crew and step back in time for a taste of what it was like to sail the magnificent ships that were once a common sight in every port. Today the Liberty Fleet offers regular public sails aboard authentic tall ships in Boston Harbor. Sailing opportunities include day sails, sunset sails, and our specialty Sunday Brunch and Rum & Revelry sails.

Both the Liberty Clipper and Liberty Star are available for private charters for corporate outings, family get-togethers, and special events, hosting well over 100 events every summer in addition to day and sunset sails. In the fall, the beautiful Liberty Clipper sails south to her winter cruising grounds while making several stops along the Atlantic Coast in October, including New York City, Baltimore, and Portsmouth, Virginia. From November through May, the Liberty Clipper can be found in the breathtaking Bahamas, offering week-long windjammer sailing cruises originating in Nassau.
