Gazela of Philadelphia

Barkentine Gazela Primeiro was built in Setubal, Portugal in 1883 and sailed from Portugal as a Grand Banks fishing vessel until 1969 when she was sold and moved to Philadelphia. She has been a museum ship and an operating sail training vessel. Here she is representing Philadephia in the Halifax Tall Ships Challenge Parade in 2004.

Link to the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild here to learn more about the Gazela and also their 1902 tugboat Jupiter.
