TALL SHIP Eagle S+23

The Seaport is pleased to host the 1936 EAGLE, a training vessel for future officers of the United States Coast Guard, when she arrives in New York this July. Throughout her visit she will be docked at Pier 17, and will offer several opportunities for the public to come aboard.

Built at the Blohm+Voss Shipyard in Hamburg, Germany in 1936, and commissioned as Horst Wessel, EAGLE was one of three sail-training ships operated by the pre-World War II German navy. At the close of the war, the ship was taken as a war reparation by the U.S., re-commissioned as the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter EAGLE and sailed to New London, Connecticut, which has been her permanent homeport ever since.

No registration needed, just stop by during the open hours.
