About Lady Washington: Launched on March 7, 1989, the Lady Washington was built in Aberdeen, Washington, by Grays Harbor Historical Seaport Authority. The new Lady Washington is a full-scale replica of the original Lady Washington. In 1788, she became the first American vessel to make landfall on the west coast of North America. Over the years, Lady Washington has appeared in several motion pictures and television shows, including Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Star Trek: Generations, Once Upon A Time, and Revolution.
About Hawaiian Chieftain: Built of steel in Hawaii in 1988 and originally designed for cargo trade among the Hawaiian Islands, naval architect Raymond H. Richards’ design for Hawaiian Chieftain was influenced by the early colonial passenger and coastal packets that traded among Atlantic coastal cities and towns. In 1993, Lady Washington joined Hawaiian Chieftain for their first mock sea battle on San Francisco Bay. Hawaiian Chieftain now joins Lady Washington, the Official Ship of the State of Washington, in educational cruises and ambassadorial visits along the west coast throughout the year.
