Tall Ship Nao Santa Maria Coming!
May 31 @ 10:30 am - June 10 @ 5:30 am
The Custom House Maritime Museum is hosting the 200-ton Spanish sailing vessel Nao Santa Maria, a modern replica of one of Christopher Columbus’ ships. It will be at Waterfront Park from May 31 to June 10.
Nao Santa Maria, a replica of Columbus’s historic vessel, was built by the same private foundation behind El Galeon, Fundacion Nao Victoria.
Built and launched in Spain in 2018, the 92-foot-long Nao Santa Maria has sailed to the Canary Islands, across the Atlantic to Puerto Rico, up to Florida and is expected to arrive in Newburyport after a brief stop in Virginia at the tail end of May.
Stay tuned for more information about tickets, events and activities while she is at the museum.
