Fun Facts

Today’s photo of Corwith Cramer was taken by a former SEA student, Jeremy Harlam, who was a trainee aboard the vessel in the Fall of 2011. Thanks for the great shot!

The backstory

The Corwith Cramer was the first ship built to the USCG’s regulations for Sailing School Vessels. The Sea Education Association (SEA), working through Tall Ships America, was instrumental in helping the Coast Guard shape these regulations. The Corwith Cramer was built in Bilbao, Spain, and it took the largest floating crane in northern Spain to launch her. She is a safe, stable vessel and a platform for SEA’s educational and oceanographic research missions. Along with the Robert C. Seamans, the Corwith Cramer is owned and operated by the Sea Education Association.
