The Charles W. Morgan sailing en route to Newport on June 15, 2104. Built in 1841, the Charles W. Morgan sailed on 37 voyages to remote corners of the globe during her 80-year whaling career. The Morgan departed in spring 2014 on her historic 38th Voyage following an extensive five-year restoration by Mystic Seaport, setting sail for the first time in nearly a century on a tour of New England’s historic whaling ports. During the 38th Voyage the Morgan hosted scientists, artists, musicians, and journalists as they explored the history of the last whaleship remaining from the American whaling fleet.
