Pride of Baltimore II set sail as the goodwill ambassador for the state of Maryland in 1988. She was built to continue the mission of her predecessor, Pride of Baltimore, tragically lost in a storm in the Atlantic Ocean in May 1986. Today, with support from individuals, businesses, the city of Baltimore, and the state of Maryland, Pride of Baltimore II sails around the U.S. and overseas to share the rich maritime history of Baltimore and to promote Maryland’s vibrant economic development opportunities. Our mission is to promote historical maritime education, foster economic development and tourism, and represent the people of Maryland in ports throughout the world.
