Charles W. Morgan Press Kit
The Charles W. Morgan is the last of an American whaling fleet that numbered more than 2,700 vessels. Built and launched in New Bedford, Mass. in 1841, the Morgan is now America’s oldest commercial ship still afloat – only the USS Constitution is older. The whaleship came to Mystic Seaport in November, 1941 and more than 20 million visitors have walked her decks since her arrival.
After more than five years of restoration, the Morgan began her 38th Voyage May 17, 2014, traveling to New London, Conn. This is the first stop on what will be a nearly three-month journey to historic ports in New England.
