S/Y COLUMBIA is a historic American-built replica of the Gloucester, MA racing/fishing Schooner from 1923. The state-of-the-art COLUMBIA has been meticulously handcrafted by Eastern Shipbuilding Group based in Panama City, Florida. This an opportunity to own a piece of history rebuilt for the modern age with every comfort imaginable.                                                       


The original COLUMBIA was a 141’ classic Gloucester Fishing Schooner built at the historic A.D. Story shipyard of Essex, Massachusetts. Essex was the center for North American Fishing Schooner construction. Designed by the innovative William Starling Burgess, the COLUMBIA was bred for speed. In the fall of 1923, the COLUMBIA challenged the Bluenose, Canada’s legendary schooner, in the International Fishermen's Cup Races in Halifax. Nearly winning the title, the COLUMBIA was narrowly defeated by the Bluenose and was one of the few American schooners to provide a challenge to Bluenose.
