Biographical Note / History The Euterpe was built in the town of Ramsey on the Isle of Man (located in the Irish Sea off the northwest coast of Britain) in 1863. The Euterpe is a full-rigged, iron-hulled windjammer vessel, which served Great Britain well, making numerous trips to India hauling jute and New Zealand transporting passengers. During these first three decades of service the Euterpe made 21 round-the-world trips. In 1897 she was sold to the Pacific Colonial Ship Company of San Francisco, California and the Euterpe made voyages from the Pacific Northwest to Australia and Hawaii transporting lumber, sugar, copper ore and coal.
