She made her first trip here for Tall Ships Duluth 2016. She began life in 1967 as the motor vessel “Liverpool Bay”. She was built from strong native timber and the skilled hands of the shipwrights of MacLean Shipbuilding, Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada. Her Captain and crew worked the Banks off Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, fishing for the cod. In 1987, after 20 years, she was abandoned at a Halifax pier. In 1992 Captain George Mainguy started converting her to a 19th century Grand Banks schooner. In the summer of 1997, now as “Mist of Avalon,” the ship returned to sea for her maiden voyage under sail. Since that time the ship has appeared in numerous feature films and documentaries in addition to being a star attraction at maritime festivals.
