Seven Masted Schooner – 1902


The Thomas W. Lawson

“The Thomas W. Lawson was a seven-masted schooner originally planned for the Pacific trade but used primarily to haul coal and oil along the East Coast of the United States. The ship was the largest pure sailing vessel ever built.

“Her design and purpose was an ultimately unsuccessful bid to keep sailing ships competitive with steam ships”
