ABOUT THE R.TUCKER THOMPSON
Built from 1970-1985, the R. Tucker Thompson’s design is based on the halibut schooners of the North West American coast. With a lofty rig of varnished oregon spars, Kwila decks and bulwarks and brasswork features, she looks the part of a 19th century working ship: purposeful and square shouldered, but fast enough to out-run the law!
The R. Tucker Thompson is operated by a not-for-profit trust which is a registered charity. All income derived from tourism sailing activities is used for her maintenance, as well as providing a contribution to help Northland youth access sail training voyages.
