The American Rover hull was built in Panama City, Florida.  She was fittted out in the Willoughby area of Norfolk, Virginia and put into service in Downtown Norfolk in 1986.  She is a Three Masted Top Sail Schooner.  Her design is inspired by the 19th Century Cargo Schooners that once sailed the waters of the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Seaboard.  Check out our upcoming cruise schedule and plan a sail with us soon!
