Vessel Description

LADY MARYLAND is a pungy schooner, a vessel indigenous to the 19th century Chesapeake Bay. Between the 1830s and 1950s, pungies carried perishable cargo on the Bay. Pungies have a hull form similar to the famous Baltimore Clippers. This design makes them extremely fast and well suited for their original mission of carrying cargo. LADY MARYLAND was built in 1986 to provide students with a hands-on opportunity to sail an historic vessel and learn about the ecology, history and economics of the Bay and the waters off the north east coast of the United States. She sails from March through November, offering single day trips as well as programs up to 10 days long.
