The Bluenose II is beautifully painted in a rosewood color with an upper black hull. The masts and booms are painted yellow. All the sails are stitched and meticulously rigged. On the deck, there are authentic lifeboats with ribs and planks. The bowsprit goes through the gunwale and are kept secured with rigging. On the deck, you can see several wooden cabins, companion ways and hatches. There are also metal “Bluenose II” nameplates attached to hull.

The schooner Bluenose
has a very special place in the history of
navigation and yachting. Built to fish off the Newfoundland
coast, the ship soon turned out to be such a fast sailer that she
won all the great classical regattas along the USA's Eastern
coast. She was built in Nova Scotia in 1921, and shipwrecked
near Haiti in 1946. A true copy - Bluenose II
- was launched in
The Bluenose II Preservation Trust Webpage.
