Prince William at dockside by George Cousins

The British sail training ship “Prince William” at dockside in Halifax, Nova Scotia, for the Tall Ships Festival in July, 2007. The ship, which belongs to the Tall Ships Youth Trust, is one of two sister-ships which have been used to provide seamanship training for British youth. The ship was originally designed for Caribbean cruises but after being bought by the TSYT she was modified to be better suited for deep ocean cruises under heavy weather. Her basic plan is a two-masted brig configuration.

For a much more detailed story on the ship and her sister-ship the “Stavros S Niarchos”, please see the story at this URL:

    What a butie !! Would love to see one of those festivals : )

  • Hi Sean, yes she is one of the nicest ones I’ve seen. Not a big ship, but very clean lines and beautifully maintained. You’ll have to come to Halifax sometime when another festival is on. They’re usually from 2 to 4 years apart. That one was in 2007, there was another this summer but I didn’t get to it.
