Artesania Latina Schooner Virginia

HISTORY OF VIRGINIA AMERICAN SCHOONER

The Virginia is a type of ship known as a ‘schooner’. The history of this kind of ship are found at the beginning of the 19th century. At the time the United States undertook the construction of small ships rigged in schooners, creating vessels of great maneuverability and elegance.

These schooners would be the seed to later US Coast Guard vessels. They had the mission of enforcing the new import and customs laws. The fast Virginia schooner was planned in the year 1819 and was launched later that same year. She was equipped with a central rotating carronade and light weapons, due to her great speed, she was a schooner destined to defend the US maritime borders on interception and pursuit missions of other ships that tried to breach the American coasts.
