Hawaiian Chieftain

Launched in 1989 as part of the Washington Centennial, the Lady Washington is a wooden replica of one of the first U.S.-flagged ships to visit the west coast of North America. In 1788, the original Lady Washington arrived off the coast of what would later become Oregon to trade with native people for furs. She also traded along the coast of Vancouver Island before returning to Boston. Hawaiian Chieftain, launched in 1988, is an interpretation of a typical early 19th century coastal trader. Hawaiian Chieftain specializes in living history educational program for K-12 students.
